A striking relic of the carnage of World War I, a German M1916/1917 "Stahlhelm"-style helmet, identifiable as such by the externally-visible lugs for attaching the chinstrap. The helmet has received what appears to be shrapnel and bullet damage, resulting in an approx. 1 1/2" irregular entry hole at the rear, with two smaller bullet-sized entry holes at the right-hand side. The left-hand side of the helmet bears two concave dents, possibly from the projectiles which caused the aforementioned holes in the opposite side. Two additional convex dents are visible to the front. The helmet bears small traces of grey-green finish but is otherwise heavily oxidized throughout, showing no apparent markings, else very good given its condition and obvious history.
