    This is a Finnish M35, produced by Hungary. It is a nice helmet.

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.

    If you collect helmets of all countries, this is a nice helmet. But if you want a German WWII helmet, this is not one.

    looks post war liner finnish helmet should have a dr or dm stamped in the skert. these were bought from hungary and refurb for the finnish army. finnish m35 somtimes called. or hungary m38. the rivets are a giveaway to say its finnish.

    Yup, +1. The rivet placement is certainly the first thing to look for with these.
