German WWI M16 Stahlhelm Steel Helmet- Hand Painted Camouflage
New Made Item: A new production run is this is a high quality all steel First Model German M-1916 Steel Helmet. It was copied from an original Stahlhelm M1916 in the IMA collection and comes very close to the real thing!
The shell is comprised of 1.8mm thick steel with rolled edge making this one of the most hefty and historically accurate M16's on the market today. It also has all the signature features including an early model genuine leather three tongue padded liner, correct leather liner helmet band, pickelhaulbe type thick leather adjustable chin strap with securing rings on the inside of the helmet bowl. Many helmets with this type of chin strap were later converted to the M17 or M18 standard, as the chin strap was prone to falling off. Later liner-mounted chin straps were far more secure, which is why the original configuration is rarely seen. The chinstrap on these helmets may require fitting and/or adjustment to properly grip the mounting lugs. This M16 also has the required ventilation horns also used for mounting a stirnpanzer sniper brow plate.
The high quality authentic hand painted camouflage is copied from an original in the IMA collection (see photos). The pattern and colors are true to the WWI trenches!
Sizing: One size fits most; this helmet comes with a drawstring leather liner, the liner is approximately from 7 (56cm) to 7 5/8 (61cm). Inner liner size can be adjusted with the addition or removal of the padding which is easily removed by untying the pocket closures.
