German WWI M16 Helmet Stirnpanzer Steel Sniper Brow Plate
New Made Item: Copied directly from and original sample in the IMA collection this is a heavy steel reproduction of the rare German WWI helmet shield known as the "brow plate" that were issued to snipers and trench raiding parties. Designed to hook onto the protruding vent lugs of the traditional Models M1916, M1917 and M1918 German helmets, they were secured with a leather strap and buckle to the rear of the helmet so one size fits all.
Records show that seven and a half million M1916 helmets were produced but only fifty thousand of the brow plates were issued, that's one in one hundred and fifty! A very hard-to-find original WWI item now available as an excellent reproduction, complete with leather strap and buckle.
Please note that these are high quality reproductions but are quite old (15 years) and have signs of storage wear such as minor surface rust and dirty leather, but all will be perfectly serviceable and requires only minor restoration, painting or cleaning. Due to manufacturing variances may require slight fitting, as different makers used slightly different specs on the vent lugs.
Helmet is not included but is sold separately.
Note - Due to manufacturing variances these may require slight fitting to your specific helmet.
