    For the FIFTH! time, a helmet has come in with a load of garbage at my family's recycling facility. I think it's an M16. What do you guys think?

    Any additional advice or information is always welcome!

    It is ridiculous, I know!

    It's gotten to the point where I consider it an "off day" when militaria doesn't come in!

    Man, you are lucky! Like said, why would people throw this stuff away!!?? Crazy!

    Hole Could be shrapnel, sniper shot, anything really. Maybe someone poked there head a little too high over the trench top?? You never know! Or...it could just be a rust hole fom being dropped/etc , because the area around the hole looks pretty worn out

    Looks like it's ground dug.

    GIZMO8Z, amazing find, it is indeed an M16 helmet, judging by the size of the air vent lugs a size 62 or 64, rusted out, the chinstrap is a corker ! and is probably worth more than the helmet shell, despite the rust, can you see any stampings/marks near to the chinstrap mounts ? for example "ET64"..... Prost ! Steve.
