Here is an extremely rare and original, museum quality, Imperial German Army Face Mask for fitting to the German M16 steel helmet. It is in very good condition with surface rust and traces of original paint remaining.
During the early years of WW1, many armies experimented with facial and body armour in determined attempts to adapt to trench warfare and reduce casualty rates. This is one such item in this category and of exceptional rarity, made by the famous Krupp company who produced much of Germanys diverse steel products. The well known Krupp logo is stamped in one corner, please study the photographs. It is unknown how many of these were produced but it would have been low in number, with very few surviving now outside museums. A very rare chance to own a scarce helmet accessory.
