    HI maximus personally i would buy a type A OR B these were made in much smaller numbers where as the C type were the most mass produced in bulgaria from 1939 onwards also the short visor version are very desireable too,all the best minnie.

    Thanks minnie, If the price is right I will, but I dont mind a C type, the mass production would explain why they are so affordable, you can get some nice ones for 50US and to me thats a bargain!!!!!!

    Personally, I'd say you should get the A, B and C types to show the evolution of the helmet, plus the very hard to get short-visor version if you're lucky and reasonably wealthy. But one thing to watch for is that the C, being the most recent and most plentiful, was refurbished throughout its long life with the Bulgar military, and if you are determined only on WW2 era material (which some people are for reasons that are in their way entirely sensible) then be careful to find one with an original liner and original paint. See Ted Muhovski's good webpage here - http://helmet.0catch.com/ for further information.
