I have seen several of these helmets for sale in the US in the past. All claim to be from Prague and all have original shells and liners. Same story about Egypt comes up also. Prices were about $350 US.

Thanks both of you!
Mine is about 240-250 USD. (pending the exchange rate...) Ok, so it is a reasonable price. Good to know.
I agree...When I saw the paint and read that it came from Czechoslovakia I knew it was one of those finds...I think they're great to own...Not as prevalent as they used to be...Those Norwegian reissues mentioned have a much darker reddish dyed liner...
Do you know what was the reason they just turned up in the last 10 years? Where were they?
It's been more than 10 years, closer to 15 years when I first saw them...They've been found in M35, M40, and M42 versions...Supposedly a warehouse discovery...I don't think any of them ever have chinstraps....
I don't know anymore than our friends have already stated...
You told me some news about the chinstrap anyway. All of you helped me a lot!
