This is a German M16 helmet fantastic condition still very smooth to the touch with only very light surface rust and retains a lot of original colour and has been very well cleaned. The shell is not complete but missing its front rim which has been ripped off in an explosion and has ripped and split down one side, the helmet has no liner or chin strap but is very solid condition pretty much semi-relic condition with lots of clear to see original green paintwork it has been so well cleaned in fact over cleaned in places but is top condition for a battle damaged relic helmet. This is rare these days to get such a nice M16 helmet recovered from the battlefield but this was found many years ago this is why its in such good condition This helmet was recovered from Bourlon Woods the November 1917 battle part of the Allied Cambrai offensive. The helmet comes with a A5 laminated information card.
