    Hello.

    I found this one from a fleamarket for a wallet ripping price of 5. Now tell me, what have I bought? It came with a clearly postwar helmet net.

    Theres C and 45 under it, in the middle of the inside of the shell.

    Looks like Soviet helmet with DDR liner. But for 5 euros - not bad at all!

    Okay, any guesses about the model ? Maybe my hands are just huge..my head is around 58cm and it fits perfectly to my head

    nice polish wz 50 ,in unissued condition i would also say its one of the latter ones before the wz 67 saw use ,these were purchased by lots of nations ,the biggest user was iraq, now im not sure what the red star denotes i doubt it is original to the helmet as most polish helmets have the eagle device stencilled on the front also i cant see it being used by other warsaw pact countries as most had the own locally made versions of the soviet ssh design ,are there any dates present look at the inside dome area and also look very carefully on the liner fingers inside and out ,nice find though for that price
