Strange helmet

Postby Jackgd2704 » 07 Dec 2017 00:05

Hi guys I have a helmet that I found that I bought years back in a foreign country. I am fairly sure it is a fake but am curious as too what it is a fake of ? Or is it just a horrendously done fake helmet :lol: ?
Kind regards

Hi there Jack
Interesting helmet! It might help knowing in which foreign country it was bought. Wouldn't it be great if it was a model 27 (Vickers) helmet :o
Any stamps, dates or other markings besides the ones on the leather liner?

I think it's Bulgarian M36 (see type C)

I also think it's a Bulgarian M36 type C, but the svastika and the runes are fake!!!!
