    It doesn't look bulgarian to me, more like a really smooth East German helmet (maybe the photo isn't good but it looks to me as a perfect cone)? Try Brandon's Helmets. You might find something there.

    It does not really look like an east german helmet... they dont have vent holes and a completly different lining.
    Very interesting piece.

    It does look like a Bulgarian M51/72 but possible had the shell cut down. The green paint on the inside looks like it's been ground away. Does it have a vent on the back, I can't say for sure from the photo's.
    Odd for sure.

    Yes it does have a vent n the back and original green paint on the inside. It is very unusual have been told by others it was used by armor drivers but can’t be certain

    ‘Trimmed-down Bulgarian in my opinion.......but had it been “official” ie cut-down by the military wouldn’t it all be the same colour (including the edge)??? Perhaps done for a movie / production of some kind ?
