    Default ww2 Hungarian helmets

    Tribute to the hungarian combat helmets of the second world war. It's time to write a chapter for the history of hungarian M35. Also feel free to post your hungarian helmet in your collection.
    The production of the hungarian M35 helmet began in 1935 almost at the same time of the development the similiar type in Germany. The hungarian model was constructed after a german ET made M35 prototype with some minor modifications in the liner system namely the M27 variation had been applied so anterior liner rivets moved backwards and positioned behind the airvents. Probably the most distinguishing characteristics of the hungarian combat helmets is a fixed metal loop on the rear skirt originally to assist packing.
    Production of M35 had went on until late 1944 (rolled edge, separate air vent rivets, rear loop) and never altered to a more simple design like in Germany. (M40, M42, M45?)
    Two helmet makers are known to exist only. "Magyar Vagon es Gepgyar" in the town of Győr, maker's mark: GY 64-66-68
    and "MÁVAG" in Budapest, maker's mark: MÁVAG under the royal hatchment and size 62-64-66-68. Occasionally a specific acceptance stamp was placed directly into the steel by KÁB (Federal Acceptance Comission).
