    Hi Mads,

    It is definitely not Polish pre-WW2. The shell looks like one of the SSh series Soviet products. I don't recognize the painted insignia.

    Regards,
    Tony

    Hi there. This is polish M50 in rare marking that belong to units securing poland's coal mines in Soviet controled country. This one is for Wujek Mine. Unit that killeed many workers during strikes against communists. Hope that helps.

    The problem is that they are easily faked and not worth that much.
    Post-war polish helmets are available for less than $20.
    Only wz31-50 holds value being pre-war shell with post-war liner.
    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,

    The two hammers are used in the Polish Mining industry. My father was a miner, and he has a ceremonial hat with the same sign. I would say this is post WW2, for during ww2, Poland used Russian helmets, or British, depending on which front they were on. This one does not look like the Russian nor the British ww2 helmet variations, so I think it's post ww2.
