German helmet I found in my grandmothers basement.

Article about: Hey guys! I need your help to identify this helmet. Iīm guessing itīs a M16 but I could be wrong because Iīm not very familiar with all the different types of helmets the wehrmacht used duri

    Thank you guys for your help. I know now that the helmet and the bag wereīnt used by any family member. The canteen is from my grandfather. That might explain the much better condition compared to the helmet and the bag, because their origin must be WW1 according to my aunts knowledge.

    @oradour Your probably right with the bread bag.

    So what do you guys think could I get for everything? I was offered 350 Euros by an antique dealer today. Seems to be a fair price for itīs condition.

    Well Iīve never really sold something like this on the internet. Do you have any suggestions on how to do this?

    In my opinion one thing to consider. The black colour could have it's right to exist if it has some historical evidence: Maye the helmet was repainted after World War One with intent (first banal idea: member of SS)?

    With best wishes and Dear Angustino: Wellcome to the forum

    In memory of my father who was in K-Einsatz, combat engagement, with the RAD in the Alps in 1945, of my grandfather who was with the IR 87 during campaign in France in 1940 and of my grand-uncle who served in the Gardegrenadierregiment Nr. 3 "Königin Elisabeth" and who was killed in action at Craonne, Chemin des Dames in France in 1917

    Any chance of pics taken outside? Looks to be period painted. Might be an early SS helmet or a helmet used for civil use. I kind of like what I see.

    M18's are certainly more rare than M16's and this would fetch a higher price than what you were offered.

    I will make some better pictures for you guys tomorrow. Iīll probably put it on the classified board then.

    I always encourage people to keep these items in their family. They are part of your family's history.


    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    The helmet and the bag arenīt related to my family. I know that they were given to my grandparents from a friend after he died. So I donīt mind to part with them.
