    Default Soviet Helmet?

    Could someone tell me if this is a Soviet, Polish or Czech helmet, and what if possible when it was first issued. Unfortunately there are no stamps or markings of any kind.

    Thanks in advance

    For sure it's one of Soviet sattelites, but for sure is not a Soviet helmet

    My best guess would be an early Czech helmet. There were some very slight differences in the dome shapes among those produced in the Warsaw Pact nations, the shape here along with the chin strap seem to be very typical of Czech helmets though I could be wrong.

    Smile Hungarian model 50

    looks like the Hungarian model 50

    notice the D shaped loops for the leather chin straps are the same and the cotton padding also the same or very similiar

    also the side view shows the distinctive flat visor that looks just like the Hungarian model 50

    Francie.
    the black rectangular shaped metal buckle and the leather straps also look the same

    these were probably made by different factories and could have minor differences in materials / colors, etc.
