HOLD (bs) Stunning, Sent-home WWI German M16 Camouflage Helmet
A European friend of mine owns this extraordinary helmet and asked me to list it for him. I am delighted to do so because of the unusual nature of this camouflage pattern. The solder art of some of these is striking, and this is no exception. The helmet is an Si66 M16, with steel liner band and a one liner pad remaining. Also very interesting is the ship-home label from the Officer to his family. Most of the information is legible still. The camouflage pattern is an extraordinary pattern of the ochre colors used by the Imperial German forces in WWI. The paint is largely intact, with some surface rust to the top of the helmet from exposure to moisture over the years. This helmet is a hard one to beat in its exotic appeal. COA accompanies.
