Original German M16 steel helmets, the classic coal scuttle model! These were sold to Finland after the First World War and used around these parts for many decades, well past the Second. A very iconic piece of Finnish military history, or military history in general.

While the shells are original WW1 manufacture, these have since been refitted with new suspension and chin straps in Finnish service They have also been repainted with gray or greenish gray, sometimes in multiple layers so the original stamps are hidden under.

In modern times these were bought from the Finnish army, then shipped to USA, then shipped back to Finland. We got some amounts of these, and they're sold off in small lots while we dig through them. Once the whole bunch is gone, that's it.

Size info

These have either a three-pad lining or a slightly newer full leather one (both pretty old). Sold as "one size".

Condition

Used, but mostly intact. As said, the liner has been replaced by the Finnish army at some point. Its condition varies, along with the chin strap, but it's always quite intact. Additionally, having had a looong service life, the shell might have small dents and scratches or rust stains. Overall these are pretty nice. The old chin strap attachments are not in use anymore, and one of them might be missing.

Not sold for any actual protective purposes, only as a collectible.
