    Default Serbian M-59/85

    I have wanted to add one of these Serbian M59/85 to my collection for some time I am rather fond of the design of the helmet body this particular example is still sporting a partial sticker type badge of the Army of the Serbian Republic.
    The liner is and suspension system is loosely based on examples found produced by the US company Riddel.
    These helmets are commonly referred to as NE44's which is actually an abbreviation of Neretva (River in the former Yugoslavia) and 1944,
    It does display rather well and opens up a hole new door to collecting as this variation of helmet has seen extensive service and remained in use right through the 1990's during the Balkans' Civil Wars and were used in Serbia /Croatia and as well by Yugoslovia with many different variations of national shield's and or specific service decals and stickers can be seen applied and I have as well seen the occasional camo painted and or netted and scrimmed examples surface in the marketplace.

    Believe it or not I see them quite often at flea markets in Ontario for around 80cad$.
    Interesting helmets and like you said they come in quite a variety of markings.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Here are my two, one has the sticker decal with the 2 headed eagle and the other with the communist star. They came with the camo covers and I purchased them from a French guy for 15 each a bargain I couldn't resist.
