Shrapnel damaged M16 camouflage helmet


A typical and surely textbook M16 camouflage helmet. The helmet is marked SI66 indicating production by Eisenhuette Silesia, Paruschowitz Oberschlesien. The helmet still retains its full original camouflage scheme and its partial liner. On the top of the helmet a small shrapnel hole can be seen which worked its way through the helmet hitting the liner band on the inside. The helmets leather liner is gone, most probably due to severe blood staining. The rear skirt of the helmet shows pencil writing which is hard to make out but easier to read in hand. This is a textbook world war one camouflage helmet in very good condition!
