Imperial German M16 Camo Steel Helmet Q66 – 100% Complete, Excellent For Sale

Imperial German M16 Camo Steel Helmet Q66 – 100% Complete, Excellent

First World War Imperial German Model 1916 steel helmet complete with liner, liner pads, liner string, and chinstrap. The helmet has regulation camouflage colors in an interesting non-regulation pattern. It’s a Q manufactured piece, size 66. All components of the helmet down to the draw string are original and by all appearances, original to the helmet. The split pins are tight and appear to have not been tampered with. The liner string holes are not pulled through. The original owner’s name (Lipps?) appears twice: once in red paint and once in pencil.

It’s rare to find an M16 is such perfect condition. I consider this to be an ultimate example of the type.

On Mar-16-13 at 09:24:45 PDT, seller added the following information:

There is an interesting to note about the camouflage pattern. It is made up of a large series of dots. A large black dot starts the series at the top of the helmet. Below that are set of dotsthat alternate from red to ochre. The bottom ring of dots alternate ochre-black-red because only 8 dots fit on the lower portion of the helmet, the painter could not have a complete series of 3 sets of 3. With the last red dot leading to an ochre dot to start the series again. The solution was to put the last red dot inside the black dot in front. This enables geomeric balance by fitting3 sets of 3 dots - 9 total - in a space where there's only room for 8 dots.

Reflecting on this puts you into the thought process of the painter. The fellow has a concept for a special camouflage scheme for his unit, probably a company, but he can't achieve symmetry, so he comes up with a little fix - a kind of inside joke maybe.
