    Default Yugoslavian Model 59/85

    Hi fellow collectors here's a Model 59/85 from my collection which I thought you might to to see and comment on, this one is named and has an MD89 Camo cover attached, of particular interest ( well to me at least!) is the remnants of the Communist star on the from of the shell, I have had previous confirmation from a fellow Serbian collector that this is a genuine used piece from the Balkans war in the 90's , many thanks for looking,regards Opex.

    Thanks James, I relate to the OCD issue and I am pleased to have owned this one for a while now, I am particularly keen on the Camo pattern on the cover, I have a Maskirni Dezen Uniforme 93 Jacket used by a Serbian soldier, which look's great with this helmet

    Update:

    I was informed by a Serbian based collector

    "Goran is Serbian name
    and other word looks like Kinez (Chinaman), probably nickname of the soldier who wore that helmet"
