Early WW1 reissued M16 helmet, started in the early 30’s as an apple green double decal example. With the 1940 regulations the glossy apple green paint and national tricolor shield was over painted using thick field green paint, only leaving the army decal visible. I can’t find a ghost of a tricolor shield, as it must have been removed prior on applying the thick paint. The helmet is complete with its original reinforced aluminum liner. The leather is heavy worn, stiff and shows several damages. It still has its full length draw string and early chin strap present. A nice untouched steel helmet!
