Another hole in my collection is filled! Yes!!!!
Just picked this up today. Classic M16 camo with chinstrap and liner. One liner pad is off and the other two are there but very dry. Chinstrap is still relatively soft.
My question. I have never seen an M16 with these ridges on the skirt of the helmet. They are most pronounced on the back but are also on the visor and sides as well. Manufacturing defect? Or just something I've missed. My other WW1 lids don't have this.
Additionally I can find any maker marks. Any thoughts on that as well?
This lid just came out of a very very old collection that is being sold off.
Any and all comments welcome.
(btw - It's 13 F here today not including the windchill which brings it down well below zero). Took some outside shots but sun glare and wind made it difficult so had to take some quick inside shots as well.)
