WW1 German Helmet Chinstrap - Brass Fittings Black Leather - Aged Condition
World War One (WW1) Chin Strap for the M16 or M17 Helmet. This strap has Brass fittings, cotton stitching, made of black leather and is made in Germany. We have had these made up to provide WWI Helmet collectors with the best chin-strap possible for your M16 or M17 Helmet after being disappointed with current reproductions. These are AGED. The brass is tarnished and the leather is dark, slightly shrunk and marked with age wrinkles in places.
This strap is also suitable for the WW1 Stahlhelm, Pickelhaube and Shako such as the Jager (Jäger) or Gebirgstruppen (gebirgsjäger) Shako's.
Be aware, neither these or the original versions were designed to fit over the peak of the helmet, if they do then you are lucky!
