    Either Polish wz.50 or maybe Polish refurbished Soviet helmet. Poland exported many helmets to the middle east.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Thanks a lot guys I was also told it's a Polish helmet. It seems to have been painted quite few times. Can you say anything about price range on such a helmet?

    $50 would be my guess - you can still find them in mint condition with dome stamps for about $100.
    If you want to sell it - keep me posted :-)

    Polish VZ50, with eagle of the first type.

    Often transformed into Ssh39.

    The liner is WW2 Italian I think mate. It must be wartime used though as the eagle seems to have a crown, and uncle Joe was not a huge fan of royalty post war

    side note:
    the helmet is designated WZ 50 for Wzor 50 - Model / Pattern 50
    VZ is Czechoslovak for Vzor - model / pattern
