    the second helmet might be Bulgarian M51 - Italian helmets had rivets with a hole.
    You can still find brand new para helmets - Polish and East German issue for $100
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    I'm not sure about the grommets actually, I have looked a few around the forum just now and can't say one way or the other. I must admit these are a bit outside of my field. It seems the shape of the chinstrap bales and the stitching in the leather are important too.

    they both appear to be Polish, the first one is the Wz63 and the second is the Wz50

    I would consider these battlefield relic condition, they might be from Iraq

    your helmets look like they might have came from these left over helmets used in the Iran Iraq war

    they have the look of long term storage somewhere in the deserts of the middle east

    maybe from this warehouse?

    WOW! Interesting idea of storage. They do look in similar condition though.
