    ian, Genuine model 1916 Stahlhelm, (a small one,a, 62 looking at the stepped airvents) only mucked about with, repainted , after the liberation of the Channel Islands (i notice its for sale in the Channel Islands). What was it doing in the Channel Islands you might ask !....well my guess is a vet bring back after the last job and not left over by second or third line troops who were part of the occupation force, notice it still has remnants of the original M91 chinstrap, the buckles and mounting plates, if these plates are original to the helmet, (it is a common occurance for them to adhere/seize to the mounting bolts) also notice the airvents are filled, probably with mud/paper, this was done by the original wearer during the Great War to stop the wind from whistleing down their lugholes !....
