    My fellow collectors ,

    Here up for discussion is a 1965 made helmet that I bought back in the early nineties from a
    dealer from one of the baltic countries.I do not remember what country he came from.A soviet helmet made in Polska ?A soviet helmet made in Polska ?A soviet helmet made in Polska ?A soviet helmet made in Polska ?A soviet helmet made in Polska ?A soviet helmet made in Polska ?A soviet helmet made in Polska ?
    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.
