    Default M16 Salty Camo Helmet

    From the thread I had up before about this helmet, I recently got it in the mail and got some pictures of it. It is in pretty rough shape, camo colors have faded and in some parts almost gone. It has no liner and some of the chinstrap still hanging on. This is my first camo and I really like it. It is named to Seg??? Dengler. I have no idea why there is that rod sticking out of it, but it is now part of the helmet and will most likely always be there.

    Very nice, I like it!

    The rod is very interesting... do you think the rod is a military issue item related to the helmet... maybe part of the tool to work on that particular type of helmet? Or do you think the rod is a foreign item that someone stuck in there for giggles sometime during this lid's ~100 year life?

    Alec.....you have already started a discuission on this helmet here.. Opinions on M16 Camo why start a new one ? if you now have it in hand, you should of added further /fresh photographs to the old thread, not only to keep it alive, but more importantly not to clog up valuable space on the forum...... I have merged the threads. As stated before, that rod should not be there, IMO it makes the helmet look silly, it looks like it has been there for some time......although if had it been there back in 1918, I think the Germans would of won the war, as the Allied troops would of been incapacitated by fits of laughter !...I would personally remove it. The helmet by the way is mm "ET" being " Eisenhuettenwerke Thale A.G." in Thale in the Harz region of Germany. The helmet is a size 64. Prost! Steve.

    Thanks Steve,

    Sorry about that I don't know why I started another thread. As for the rod, it is stuck in there pretty tight. I did not want to try to pull it out in fear that I might damage the helmet.

    Thanks,

    Alec

    Steve,

    I can understand your dislike for the rod but I find it unnecessary for me to fiddle with it at all right now. When on display you cannot see it with the normal side facing out. I pefer to leave items as I find them, once they become someone elses they can do what they please.

    Thanks,

    Alec

    This is just a thought, but I wonder if that rod is in there to paint the helmet. It would be something you could hold onto the helmet by while you're painting it. I have seen a photo of an actual platoon/company of German soldiers whose job it was to camo paint helmets in large quantities. Maybe this was one of their tools.
