Product Description

An excellent example of a WWI Model 1916 German Lightweight Steel Helmet in good condition that was made for a child, or possibly an officer.

The construction of this piece is impeccable, so good in fact we are unsure if it isn't a lightweight version for a senior officer, not least because of the quality, but also because of the authentic segment camouflage paintwork. The helmet has a wool or horsehair liner with a silk adjustment cord. The leather chinstrap is partially damaged and dry.

A very unusual and rare item, it was part of a group of headgear that has come from the world renowned Robbie Wilson Collection and are guaranteed as such. His collection is regarded as the largest collection of military headgear ever and while this led to the foundation of the Wilson History and Research Centre in 2008, part of this collection was still kept personal. Following his death in 2012 this personal collection has been sold and this piece is from that portion of his incredible collection.
