    Default What did I just win? Soviet helmet?

    hi Guys,

    I just won this for 27 EU - the seller had no clue what he was selling - I checked "Brendon's helmet" site - but none of the "Soviet style" helmets matched this (especially the chin-straps).

    So what nation and how old is it?

    My guess is "Soviet" - I have Polish, Checz, and Hungarian helmets - none of them look like this...

    THX in advance!

    I think its a Hungarian model 1950 helmet based on the Soviet M40 design, but I'm sure others will correct me if I'm wrong.

    Thanks - I think it's def. not Hungarian M50 - I have 12 of those (liner, chin-strap, and markings are different)

    Soviet M60 ?
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    THX guys - I'll know more when the helmet arrives - maybe there is marking on the inside of the liner...could be CCCP M60.

    Yes, I am sure it is a ssh60, looks like it is missing part of its liner adjustment cord.

    Looks like an Ssh 60 but i don't recognise the webbing and leather chin strap, also Soviet lids are usually covered in ink stamps but of course they could have worn off or been painted over!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
