    Default Steel helmet M16 Two tone camo

    It's already a while since I posted something, but I din't have much time to do so, but let's start again...
    This helmet is for about 8 months in my collection, and the longer I look at it, the more I like it...
    It's a M16 with a two tone camo, the inside of the brim is also overpainted.
    I can't make out wich maker it is, but an "E" is slightly visible, therefore I think it's an ET size 66. The liner has never been touched and sits rock solid in the shell...
    The helmet was found in a local antique shop in Haarlem only a few weeks before I purchased it... As you can see on the label, this helmet was once sent to the family Lacomblé in Haarlem (The Netherlands) by mr. Krieger of Amsterdam.
    Enjoy the pictures,

    Adler,

    That is one sweet stahlhelm. Never been touched look to it. If you see an 'E' on the area of the MM and it's a size 66. The Manufactor would have to be Eisenhüttenwerk Thale, Thale/Harz 'ET' the only other manufactor with an 'E' that I know of was Sachische Emailles u. Stanzwewerke 'SE' but they only made a size 64.
