GERMAN WWI M16 TRENCH HELMET.
A fabulous battlefield recovered M.16 trench helmet in the very large size TJ66, the skull having 98% of all its original apple green finish remaining with slight rust flooding through the paint on the crown area, even impacted small traces of battlefield mud are still adhered to the outer crown. The M.16 leather liner is all intact with all three pads including the drawstring, all the inner horsehair pads are present and the original strap with one end fitting broken however a full length strap is present. The condition of this helmet lends itself to the theory that this may have been recovered by British forces to use for battlefield analysis and then stored in a military complex ever since. Ex Michael Baldwin collection.
