    glad you like it, i like it myself also. I really have no idea if the badge is original or not like I already mentioned in my first post.
    I'm sure there will be someone who can tell.

    I have this helmet since so long, have no idea if they are still available, I think Dimas can give an answer on that question.
    thanks

    I've saw two of them, at Finnish militaria show in Tampere, reproductions of course. I just couldnt get myself to buy a repro over 100e, that I wont even use in reenacting. Maybe someday.

    The bad: It doesn't make sense to me that the top point of a star designed for this helmet would overlap the comb in that way.
    The good: The rust around the top of that star perfectly matches the rust where they meet on the comb, so it looks like it has been there a long time.
    My verdict: No idea what it is and doubtful anyone would ever really know, but it looks cool and has a nice patina and I'd like to own something like that, but only for an amount of money that I would be fine with never recovering at all

    Well, ... the helmet is a french M26 used during WW2.
    We could have thougth at the spanish war but the liner is brown that is usualy known as post war.

    Could also have been Communist french resistance, or simply a fake. I am not sure about the Liners being only Post War - but i vaguely remember something like that.

    The way the crest is fixed ti the shell is also post-war.
    That said they were many communist countries after WWé but most of them used the "soviet style" helmets.

    The number is unusual.
    Anyway it looks realy old
    Just wondering if their is no green part on the star. So it maybe something else.

    Do we know where the helmet comes from? It could give an indication.
