IMPERIAL GERMAN EARLY M.16 HELMET.
An excellent condition M.16 trench helmet of the early construction, very similar in shape to the rare SH60 helmets, also by an unusual manufacturer, marked ‘G62’. The helmet retains virtually all of its early apple green finish with some losses as can be seen by our web images. The interior also holds virtually all of its paint. The thick leather liner band and the three individual pockets are complete. Two of the three pads have split to a measurement of 3cm in the area where they fold over the inner liner band. The two tongues on each section are complete, although frail and three tongues have split where the drawstring flows through the pierced holes. The original drawstring still present. The original leather chinstrap is also present but has split in one place and is affixed through friction to the attachment clip.
