    Hey everyone,

    I need some help!

    What are your thoughts on this lid? Not in my hands, but I'm curious about its origins. Supposedly "from a bunker in Russia." Green Hungarian M38 shell with white paint and an odd chinstrap and liner. I know that many of these helmets were used by Finland post war, but the liner and chinstrap don't match Finnish examples that I've seen.

    The white paint looks old, but looks like it may be on top of much of the corrosion on the green paint. The string in the liner looks newer too, as does the chinstrap.

    What are your thoughts on this one? An interesting case.

    Thanks in advance!

    Doesn't look like a Finnish used helmet to me also and like you say has been messed about with new chin strap and liner cord not a helmet I would buy

    Hungarian M35 (not finnish M38) relic shell. The liner and strap is junk, the white "camo" is fake.

    The white paint over pitting is just such a rookie mistake by the faker.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
