German Model 1916 US Souvenir Art Helmet-This helmet was the souvenir of a US service person who turned it into a work of art to immortalize their service time. They may have been a member of an artillery unit based on the art work, but who knows. Let’s start at the front, which features an image of the Statue of Liberty. Around the bottom of the skirt, there is an ocean scene featuring two different war ships. The left side has a field cannon. The right side has a similar cannon with its four-man crew. The top of the dome has a fighter plane. This is all rendered in beautiful colors and it remains mostly intact. The helmet is a German made Model 1916. The interior has the original tan combat finish. The original three pad white leather liner and steel liner band are in place. The helmet is stamped on the right side of the interior with the size 66. What a wonderful piece of history!
