    Default my new M16 helmet

    I've told this story before---
    For my 16th birthday (1972), I was given a m16 helmet and a s98/05 bayonet by a family
    friend who's husband brought them back from the war. The helmet was lost in
    a house fire back in '79.



    Last week I found and bought a nearly identical replacement. This is my first German
    steel helmet sense I lost that one so many years ago. I am using the sellers pictures
    as I have discovered that helmets are not all that easy to get good pics of.-- I hope Tony
    does not mind.

    I tried half the morning to get a good shot of my new helmet and this
    was about all I could manage.

    Lovely helmet Greg!
    I am sure this one has special meaning for you. I can't imagine how elated you are to have finally replaced that one you lost so long ago.
    I think a "little" more light will yield you a better photo.
    Congrats!

    Thumbs up Nice Stahlhelm.

    Yep, looks like an honest piece. Nice obvious camo. Hope you got her for decent price, I'd be happy to own it any day of the week.

    Great little display too.

    Regards,
