    Hi there,

    I'm new to the forum and was wondering if anyone could help me identify this helmet. It looks to me like it is German, WW2. There are no number stamps that I can see on the helmet. The strange thing is there are two rivet holes on the left side of the helmet and 3 on the right side. There is another rivet hole at the back of the helmet.

    The helmet is misshapen and there's remains of brightly coloured paint as well as flecks of gold on the front of the helmet.

    Here are some pics...

    An odd one for sure. Maybe a restored relic or a messed with post war BG. The gold could be from brazing used to restore it. I can't say for certain.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Thanks for your advice! Hmmmm, still not convinced on the Bulgarian helmet, they seem to have the symmetrical rivet holes. Although it could have been messed with as you say Bond. Any other ideas let me know! Thanks again

    Maybe it has been in a fire? A very strange one.
