Description:

WORLD WAR II GERMAN SS HELMET
German M1916 helmet, of the type used by combat units throughout World War I. Surplus stocks of these helmets were commonly issued to early SS units, before the establishment of the Waffen-SS and the wide availability of the M1935 helmet. This helmet, a dug relic, features a badly worn SS rune decal on the right-hand side. The helmet shows considerable damage at the rear, with two approx. 1/2" holes located in a vertical line above the rim. Between these holes, and spreading out to the sides of the helmet, is a very large crack. The entire helmet is deformed, likely as a result of this damage. The leather liner and chinstrap are missing, and no interior markings are visible. Sold as-is
