    Default M16 Stahlhelm and matching Gasmaske

    Friends, Some photos of my M16 Stahlhelm and matching Gasmaske purchased in 1974 for $50 and $25 respectively. This is the first memorable war material I collected not counting the Japanese bayonet and US sun helmet found in the attic. I became interested in such things as a teen in the early 70s. According to the book "Stahlhelm" this may be one of the first 100,000 produced due to the height of the visor. I have not confirmed this as fact - perhaps the group can chime in. The helmet is marked Brunnlieb and matches the gas mask canister. Unfortunately, the original helmet strap disintegrated. The copy on it now with the original hardware was made by Frank Barone.

    Thank you kindly gents for your feedback! Over the years I was tempted to sell when times got tough but I could not part with my first real purchase. Any thoughts on value these days? Neil H.
