    Default Camo M16

    Hi Guys, this was a very lucky buy from an antiques fair in the UK some years ago. I just beat a militaria dealer to it.

    Camo WW1 German helmets are very popular and are now much reproduced. Take great care in buying one.

    Look at the honest wear and age to this one.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Nice helmet Ade, you don`t see to many M16 with complete liner! and in that good condition. Nice one I must say

    I got me one myself two weeks ago from a well known Swedish collector so I was not cheap but it is very nice!

    Nice one Adrian. Personally I don't dare buying any camo helmets since they are so frequently faked. Most of these fakes are so good that you can't distinguish them from real ones if you haven't got a trained eye...

    Yours seems to be a good one

    Nice! Legitimate, untouched First War cammos are hard to find. And as mentioned, highly faked. Thanks for sharing.

    Ade, now thats what an honest looking WW1 camo should look like, i had one many yrs ago but for some insane reason i gave it to my nephew because he started collecting, my sister, his mother threw it out in the rubbish about 10yrs ago along with a few very nice items that i gave him, needless to say i was not impressed and we dont speak anymore, it was one of the last things my dad got me before he died. Do you use anything to keep the leather supple

    Hi Dave, it is really best not to put anything on old leather. I wipe over with a clean cloth is all that is needed. There is something written on the liner which I cannot read. Ignore the drawstring which is a modern replacement.

    I would have been annoyed too if that happened to a gift.

    Cheers, Ade.
