GERMAN M1916 STEEL HELMET
WW1 German Reproduction
Each German WWI helmet is fitted with two Ventilation horns
onto which the heavy steel brow plate for Snipers and Machine Gunners
could be hung for added protection. These new made steel helmets
complete with leather liner and chin strap.
When Germany entered WWI in 1914 troops still wore the leather spiked helmets known as "Pickelhaulben" which proved no protection what so
ever. After two years of trials, and terrible losses, the German Army
adopted this M-1916 Steel STAHLHELM. Larger than its Nazi descendant of
1935, this WWI version was often referred to as the "Coal Shuttle"
helmet. (See below for more pictures)
