    Although quite common, these are one of my favorite helmets. We have an example of all three types, keeping our eyes open for a short visor C type still, they roll around every now and again. There are so many variatons to these helmets, pre, wartime and post war, you could fill a room with them.

    C & B types are German made, A type is Czech made, If I remember correctly and painted decals are post war, and the A type is the only model with a Bulgarian made liner--- and again if I remember correctly! here's some shots of mine

    World War Helmets also has useful info. .: World War Helmets - Bulgarie :.

    I think it's important to get away from the idea that these helmets are German made (or even designed). They look vaguely German but, (in my opinion) if they belong to a 'design family' at all, it's the Art Deco one that includes the Spanish Con Ala type, Dutch types etc. The M36 was a Bulgarian project. Manufacture was contracted out to a Czech, a German and a Bulgarian factory. It's difficult to assess the accuracy of books and websites - none are infallible - but, without visiting the primary sources personally, you just have to make a judgment on their integrity. I believe both the sites mentioned are well respected. Best Regards,
