    Hello people. Some pictures of a camo-painted M16 stahl helm that I have. Hand painted inside the rim is "Gefr. Mach". Does anyone have any comments on its' possible provenance, or any special features? I've had it for over 30 years - having bought it in an antiques shop in Scotland.

    Hi Andy, welcome to the forum!

    I had the pleasure of holding this helmet in hand and in real life it is even nicer than in the pics.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Now that is nice . Every time I see one of those, I feel like kicking my own backside for letting mine get away.
