    I have owned this for a number of years. It has been on a shelf. I know I posted it long ago on another forum but forgot what was said about it...

    Thoughts?

    Hi Matt,

    The stencilled insignia appears to be for a cavalry unit, so I would assume it could have belonged to a member of a tank or possibly recon regiment.

    Regards, Ned.

    I love the look of these m33's . ESP. With the nice stencil. One of the only axis helmets I don't have in the collection!

    This link lists it as a Spanish Cavalry helmet (at the bottom of the page)

    I was looking for something to back that up and came up with this thread, I've added a picture from it.

    I don't know if the fact that yours is on a re-painted makes any difference.
    It's definitley a nice helmet.
