    Default M38 helmet

    I found this helmet from Estonia.

    Ww2 Finnish issued DR66. Liner size seems to be 59/60, propably leaning towards latter. I believe it to be 100% original Finnish issue, except for the paintjob, which I believe to be Finnish army postwar repaint.

    What makes it interesting is the parts. It has ww2 german liner attached and hungarian chinstrap.

    Nice DR helmet, congrats! Yes, chinstrap and D-rings is hungarian production, rivets and liner have been replaced. Very interesting to see a german M31 liner in it, I have a very identical example in my collection too. Sometimes it's very difficult to differentiate war time and post war modifications on finnish helmets like this.
