    Default M16 G.62 from an attic in Bavaria

    First M16 (or WWI helmet for that matter) I ever bought and it was a quick decision, too.
    Found it on eBay Kleinanzeigen for cheap(160 with shipping) and decided to call the advertiser immediately to secure it as the ad had just gone online.
    Looks to be in nice shape, but I'll see more when it arrives.
    It was found in an attic in Pocking, Germany.
    I'd like to know what you think of it
    I know the pics aren't good but the ad is already deleted and I forgot to save it haha.

    Lucky! For 160 it definitely was a steal!

    Yeah when I saw it I immediately called the seller(s), they were an elderly couple and quite nice so fingers crossed

    Congratulations Luis. Those Gnuchtel shells are very nice looking and a little scarce.

    Looks like a nice one with all pads intact.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Good news!
    As you can see, it arrived safe and sound, I even did an improvised live stream on my Youtube account of unboxing it haha.

    It's a really nice helmet, named and unit marked by the looks of it.
    If any of you can help me out with those markings and possibly pointing toward a certain unit that would be great

    I'd like to know what you lot think of it now that you have better photos, it was found in Pocking, Germany.
