    Need to head up to my folks house and dig it out. I will post for you. Has a liner in it that looks WW2 period. That's the only reason why I bought it.

    Default German M56 / 66

    these photos show the East German M56 or M56/66 in use by the North Vietnamese, that makes them more interesting to me since I like to collect Vietnam War era militaria

    found this interesting artical about EG helmets but it's in Spanish, also the photo of variations of leather Y straps that were used on the M56 and M56/76 helmets from 1958 - 1980's.
