    He told me that this helmet and another one he had came from a former soviet military depot
    and therefore he was dead sure that he had a soviet russian helmet for sale.
    Now , what we have here is a polish wz.50 helmet in a quite unusual dark green color and a red star.

    So do you also think that we have here a helmet that was made in poland and then delivered to the
    soviet army as indicated by the non typical paint and the addition of the red star ?

    Let me know what you think.

    Regards

    The Polish supplied a lot of wz.50s to Albania and i think this may be one of them.
