When was this helmet actually used? Germany started issuing the new steel (Stahlhelm) helmets to their troops in 1916 during WWI (World War I). The new steel helmets replaced the old Pickelhaube helmets (the German spiked helmet) that were used by German troops from 1842 until 1916.
About The German M16 Helmet:
The M1916 model helmet was the first German design of the new steel helmets. The M1916 helmets were first used by the German’s Imperial Army in 1916 during World War I, hence the name “M1916″ (Or M16 for short).
The M16 helmets had 2 horn-like ventilator lugs which were intended for, but rarely used for additional steel brow plate (Stirnpanzer). The 2 ventilator horns caused problems with cold air getting into the helmet in the winter time, which the soldier had to fix either by using mud or cloth to cover the inlets, which is why the German Army did not add the lugs to later versions of the helmet.
The M16 helmets were painted the normal field grey color (Feldgrau) at the factories, but most troops camouflaged the helmets themselves with paint, mud, and foliage to make it harder for the enemy to see them in combat.
