    Shell is the Hungarian M50. Absolutely.
    Liner and chin strap looks like from the Russian SSH-40. This is a fantasy from the seller.

    Sorry this is not a Hungarian M50, this helmet is the result used by the Romanian army :

    Do you have any information on the production of steel helmets in Romania after the war? I do not! I will be glad to know about it anything new.
    Hungarian helmet M50 can be easily distinguished from the Russian SSH-40 in the form of visor. Hungary has a horizontal plane and a Russian - slant down - forward. Look at the picture and draw conclusions.

    And I've never seen M 50 with the loops jugular square on helmets Hungarians they are round and semi circle . Look at the way that I surrounded .
    Romania has used the ssh 40 that does not mean it has produced this helmet

    Looks like my Russian M40 ,IMO. Although yours has the two point chin strap which is earlier than mine as mine was upgraded in 1948.

    Hi Dean, just to clarify a point.

    Your helmet will have been made in 1948, but the later style chinstrap fitted to yours will be an upgrade done much later. I don't have a date of introduction for this chinstrap system.

    Cheers, Ade.
