Hungarian Ww2 Helmet

Recommended Posts

I bought a helmet today in Budapest for about $72. Best I can discern it's a M38 Hungarian WW2 helmet, 18th Reserve Division. Saw action on the eastern front spring, 1944.

That cool. How difficult is it to get that kind of stuff through customs?

I don't foresee a problem. The Roman numerals on the helmet sold me!

I read about the seige of Budapest. It was very brutal. Also the murder of the Jews.

Reading some boards they say m38 went to the Finns, and m35 was Hungarian. They also say blue-gray is civil defense. I'll post them pictures later to get better ID. I don't see any pictures where Romance numerals are on the helmet.
