    Default My first Polish helmet

    I bought this helmet for 5 shipped from Poland. I'm Polish and I decided that I need some diversity in my helmet arsenal, specifically Warsaw pact. The pics are the seller's, not mine. I will upload better pics when it arrives. Do you think that it's a good deal? Pics:

    I'm not familiar with polish helmets. What type and era is this from?
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    It's a Wz. 67 which (coincidentally) were made in the 60s and 70s. It looks mint, what do you think for the price?

    what can i say but well done ,just to be clear you have a wz 50 not 67 the earliest one i have is dated 1953 so check the ink stamping if one on the inner crown or liner ,the eagle insignia is interesting and not one ive seen before perhaps an early milcja obywatelska ,here is one of my example's Click image for larger version.

    I've also never seen this version before. I don't collect post war helmets, so by no means am an expert, but most of the officially applied eagles were done so using stencils. Once can't rule out the possibility of being an early Milicja Obywatelska (Citizen's Militia). The only one's I'm familiar with appear like the one pictured below.
