  • $ 3,500


WWI Model 1916 Reichswehr Helmet, Named-This example was recently acquired from the world class collection of Canadian Doug Buhler. This German produced helmet features a field grey finish that remains literally fully intact. The left side, as worn, has a hand painted red, white and black National shield. Behind it there was another shield which has been removed; this most likely was a state shield. Inside, the original three pad, brown leather liner with steel liner band is in place. It is excellent with minor discoloration only. The owner wrote his name, "H. Efsit", onto one of the pads. There is a drawstring and all of the stuffing appears to be present. The side of the interior has a stamping that reads NJ 62 indicating it was produced by Vereinigte Deutsche Nickelwerke, Schwerte Westphalen in the size of 62 (this was the only type and size they made interestingly enough). Also seen is a brown leather chinstrap which is complete with its original painted metal buckle. A fantastic example of a desirable lid!
