This is a fascinating helmet. It’s an M16 marked Si66. In 1917 the Geermans sent a train-load of helmets from the Si plant to Bulgaria as part of a sort of lend-lease operation aimed at keeping Bulgaria in the war.  After 1918 the Bulgarian army used and re-used these helmets. (They actually still had them in military stock in 1990). This helmet was adorned with the Royal Bulgarian crest sometime around WW2. The original crest is still 80% intact. The helmet has post war liner and chinstrap set-up which dates anywhere from the late 40s to the 80s. I don’t believe that there is any reference which can nail down more precisely when they used which liners during their repeated rebuilds of these old M16 helmets. This example is missing the rear split-pin. I bought this helmet from a guy in Bulgaria in about 2003. You can now buy it from me for $400

Bargain basement # 181

This is an original EF66 M42 helmet. I believe that the helmet was painted in green and the swastika added as a souvenir during or just after the war. I don’t know what the liner is. It is an original M31 outer frame held in by the helmets original split-pins. The leather strap and composite material “fingers” are something of a mystery to me. I don’t believe it’s the work of the Germans but looks like it’s been there for a very long time. Maybe all of the time since then. SOLD

Bargain basement # 176

I don’t know what happened to this. It started out life as an NS62 Double decal Luftwaffe. I don’t know when it was painted in tan. Maybe it’s a period job and maybe not. Somebody went digging for the national color shield sometime after. The interior paint is original and there is even a part of the dome stamp visible. There is a palm-tree/swastika on the left side that sure looks period. But I can guarantee nothing so I’m selling this for the price of the shell. SOLD
