    Yes correct these are often sold as russian ssh40,very similar in shape but slightly less quality liner pads and these have leather chinstrap as opposed to webbed type on the ssh40,still a nice euro postwar helmet to have in your collection,regards Dave.

    Many thanks for looking Dave, and for your comments.

    Admittedly I don't own any Russian helmets,to compare this one to in terms of profile,but I assume these Hungarian models are very much the same profile?

    Thanks again.

    I think the Hungarian M50 is a interesting varient of the Ssh40, the crude liner pads look very similiar to the rare North Korean steel helmet except they use copper rivets on the NK model

    every cold war helmet collector should have a M50 in the collection
