WW1 German M18 Camo Helmet.

A very nice example of quite a rare camo M18 German helmet finished in a typical paint scheme. The camo finish rates at well over 95% intact with three diffrent colours applied, green, dark brown and and ocher .This typical pattern differs only from not having the black lines added, making the pattern less distinctive. The inside has its three white leather pads intact with all pillows, there is slight damage to one pad on the outside and two fingers reinforced by leather at some point, all liner end holes have been reinforced, only two have actually gone thru. The three pads are securely held to the side by the tight metal liner band. All three liner pins are tight and have not been tanpered with.The boot lace was there when i found the helmet and can be removed if you wish. The shell is stamped to the side BF64 and has numeous numbers stamped to the inside crown. Paint rates at over 75% of its original factory finish. The remains of the carbine clip end can be found still attatched to one bale. A sweet and rare lid.
