    Default DDR East German Border Guard Helmet

    I studied abroad in Berlin for two weeks a few years back and I picked this up from a street vendor near Check Point Charlie for like 20euro. What do you guys think?

    Can anyone help me identify a maker and when it was made? I can't seem to find any markings.







    Hopefully the pictures work... bear with me.

    Thanks for taking a look!

    Have a look here, it is the later version of the M56:

    ALEMANIA 66

    Worn by the NVA.

    Cheers, Ade.

    BTW, your liner is installed backwards, the brow piece should be at the front
