    Very nice example and price ,I think I paid about £20 for an M-50, and I agree with your comment about them being pure cold-war history,thanks for sharing!!

    UPDATE:

    the Hungarian M50 helmet arrived today...

    I wish I had a good camera - sorry - only these pics:

    markings:

    - some unreadable ink stamp on one of the "cushins"
    - a large number inkstamped: "3" - see pic. 3.
    - a small inkstamped: "MEQ40" - see pic. 4. (well, it's blurred a bit)
    - embossed in the helmet: "B26" (unless it's 326 or 826) - see pic. 5.

    overall, I'm happy with it...best 10 dollars ever spent.

    cheers,
    Fabe

    Terrific value, Fabe! Is it a large size shell, do you think? If so, the number '3' may indicate size - I think there may have been 4 sizes altogether. Best Regards,

    Correction, there were 5 sizes according to World War Helmets (.: World War Helmets - Casque Modèle 50 :.). And the '3' is the size! So, medium-ish. Best Regards,
