    Default Post-war Hungarian helmet...I think.

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm mostly into collecting WW2 German/Hungarian field gear, Hungarian helmets...well I do have a German helmet, but I think it will be some time, before I get into "german-helmet-collecting"

    Anyway...I discovered a couple of sources of post-war Hungarian helmets ( from 1949 and on, when the Hungarian army starter to copy Soviet helmets, etc.), here in Hungary - and thinking about getting some. The prices are a laugh... Most of them are between 8-15 dollars.

    I was looking at this one:

    The seller has no info - he's not a millitary seller, mostly sells junk I "think" that this is a 1950s (M50?) Hungarian helmet - but maybe you guys might either confirm or deny this. The price is 10 dollars...

    That's an extraordinarily good price for very good condition M50s; keep a look out for examples that have the acceptance or makers stamps within, as not all do. Gosh, I rather envy you your good fortune.

    THX, will check for stamps when arrives...
    Btw, great site!

    I used to live in the USA years ago, now in the last 13 years, I've been living here in Hungary.
    Lots of pros & cons when it comes to collecting millitary stuff...
    Here in Hungary, you can find lots of stuff for really cheap price - also it's an official EU country - so shipping within Europe and UK is not bad.
    But also in the same time, it's almost impossible to order anything from the US, for the shipping prices are out-of-control.

    hi Guys,

    any thoughts on this Hungarian M70(?) helmet?

    with Hungarian tri-color stencil + F as of: "FORGALOMIRÁNYÍTÓ" ( millitary traffic-controller )

    is this considered a rare type with the stencils?

    I think it costs around 4800 hungarian forints ( around 15 dollars )

    I kind of like this...

    I do not believe that this variant is particularly rare - however, 15 dollars!!!! - that's a LOT less then my standard M70 cost me. Of course that was a few years ago when these helmets were genuinely rare in Western Europe, but really I'd say that's a pretty low price for an excellent example even now here in 2013. You're a lucky man.

    THX, I think I might pick this up as well...
    - ok, these were never in "real" combat before - excluding the ones during the 1956 Hungarian uprising against the Soviets...and yes, they're "clones" of the Soviet type - but with better interior strappings

    still, they are still pure cold-war HISTORY!

    I think MOST post war (especially Eastern-Bloc) helmets get a bad rep...but I think within a few years, these wil climb up with the prices.
    ( I say this, because we are not very far from having armies with no or very minimal infantry )
