    Hello and welcome to the forum.

    This is an original helmet, many Bulgarian m36 helmets have been re-fit for use in the cold war era, this looks as though it hasn't. These have such little value to collectors I could never see them being 'faked', although perhaps disguised as TR items to fool the really uninformed.

    A nice start! I actually started out my helmet collecting with a very similar helmet. Best 20 bucks I ever spent!

    Cheers
    Best regards,
    Chris
