Default #1119 M16 Mail Home....Little Guy

The smallest size (size 60) helmet produced.

The mail home labels have become almost unreadable over the last 100 years, but some of the postage stamps are still present..........

Little guy with huge vent lugs. Awesome, scarce lid. According to a document transcribed in Ludwig Baer's "Vom Stahlhelm zum Gefechtshelm", only 1% of all WWI German steel helmets were made in this size.

What maker would that be? Never seen that stamp before...
