WW1 German Helmet Liner Split Pins - Aged Condition
A set of reproduction WWI German M16, M17, M18 & Austrian / Hungarian German Helmet split pins (Rivets). These were used for attaching the liner to the helmet shell. These are ideal for relic, semi-relic or very aged WWI German helmets and you can remove some of the rusting with wire wool if required. Normal oil or acrylic paint can be used over the rusting to blend the pins with the helmet finish.
So if you need a liner fitting to your World War One helmet you can buy these German made rivets. There are two thinner capped ones and one thicker capped one, this was to allow the fitting of a sniper protection visor at the front of the helmet. All you need do is fit them through the shell and liner holes and bend them back!
These are a tight fit so you may have to use a small hammer or file down one of the sides if you want a loose fit!
