    Default German Helmet M45 B/II, any opinion is appreciated!

    Hello, every one,

    All the photos are come from a seller in P.R. China.

    Due to the limited knowledge myself, please kindly help me to identify it.

    Thanks for sharing.

    At a guess i'd say a "doctored" DDR M56, the liner looks like a Bundeswehr/BGS item.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    That would be my best guess too.

    If you look closely it looks like the flared rim of the M 56 has been ground off.

    Sounds reasonable. Thanks.

    So, it is possible a Homemade piece basis on DDR M56?

    Do you have any picture with details about the original one? I've done the search by google, but most of them are too small to recognize, or just some drawing. Thanks a lot.

    Thanks, my friend.
