    Default Stamp in helmet

    My fellow collectors ,

    Not too long ago I got me this nice 1954 dated helmet.
    I always liked the sturdy high quality of these and now want to ask
    about the meaning of the stamp inside the dome.

    It reads :

    KZWM
    1954
    17/12

    Could anyone shed some light on the meaning of this stamp ?

    Thank you very much

    Bernhard

    The helmet looks russian. I think the KZWM is the makers mark.

    As I placed this Question in another forum too I got an answer
    from a collector there.

    The meaning of the stamp is :

    KZWM = Kieleckie Zakłady Wyrobˇw Metalowych

    Factories of the metalwork in Kielce - city in south Poland
