    Rogerc1, thats a nice model 1966 DDR NVA steel helmet you have there....these are readily and cheaply available on line, worth snapping up, their supply will run out one day, just not soon ! it is worth trying to find a Model 1956 to go alongside your 66, that will not be as easy a helmet to find, but they are still out there. Trivia:- This helmet was based on the M44/45 helmet the Wehrmacht intended to replace the M35 series of helmets with ! see here... Le casque prototype de la Wehrmacht modèle 44
    Prost ! Steve.

    Hi All,

    Nice helmet there!

    I'm expanding my collection from German/Hungarian WW2 field gear - to Cold War gear (including head-gear) - mostly post-war Hungarian and some East-German stuff like your helmet...

    Yes, post war East-Block stuff is not very "trendy" currently, but as Steve have mentioned it: in a few years, they will be.

    Cheers,
    Fabe

    PS: I'll post all my stuff when I get decent photos of them
