    Default garage found ww2 helmet??

    Hi all,
    found this in a garage sale at the weekend and was wondering if i got a good buy or not, 20 ? ?
    the age seems right, it has been initialled also and i can see some very feint numbers in same ink as initials also...VERY feint!

    I collect medals so this is a bit out of my comfort zone please help!

    As far as my knowledge goes, it is a bulgarian M36 helmet.

    I think its just a generic Bulgarian helmet which appears period, the camo is paint brush applied mixed with sand but whether that is period or not, hard to say , really it could have been done within the last 20-30 yrs or even longer

    Hard to tell from the photos but looks like a first type Bulgarian M-36, as others have stated. Never seen the paint or texture coating on one of these.

    a couple of my friends have said its quite an unusual find! the coating definately looks period, noway the initials and numbers are faked as he leather had to be cleaned slightly before you could see them!
    trying to picture where this camo would have been used?
    cheers

    For 20$ I'd say it's worth it. Nice Type A Bulgarian helmet.

    EDIT - Missed the rolled edge somehow. I think I should get some sleep.

    Nice Bulgarian M36A rolled edge.
    Early liner still in place. Unusual camo.
    Good catch for $20!!!

    I have never seen a camo M36 before. Could you please post some very close up shots of various sections of the paint?
