Identify Helmet

Post by Alg00018 » 18 Oct 2022 11:35

We bought a helmet from a street market in Spain over the weekend. The vendor told us it is Czechoslovakian. Is anyone able to identify the make/model? Many thanks.

It looks Italian to me. The liner looks to be an Italian M33 type. Generally straps are riveted on with two rivets. Liner markings also not sure on? Or it's a Bulgarian M51/72. they look close to the Italian M33. It's a start hope this helps your search!

Hi Alg00018,

for sure an italian M33 helmet, no question about it.
M33 helmet: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M33_helmet

Hard to find here in Germany, in Italy still for little money today, apart from the special specimens... :wink:
