this is my first post so I hope it's in the right place
At the moment I am looking at a M16/M17 Stahlhelm for sale, however what bothers me slightly is the placement of the holes for the chinstrap mounts. Looking closely at the photographs it is somewhat possible to see that the holes are placed asymmetrical, when looking from above. Also from the sides, it is as if one is futher back than the other, from the 'visor slope'. I have no doubt that it is a genuine German helmet from WWI, however does anyone know the possible reasons for difference in placement for the holes?
Also if anyone knows, how much are helmets like these worth (in this condition)?
Any help is appreciated
