    Bulgarian M36 Helmet. Bulgaria became and Axis member after Hitler told them he was going to cross their country to get to the Balkans, and he could either do it as an ally, or as a conqueror. They chose the former. Late in the war they switched sides and became an ally of Russia, hence the red star. When Adolf demanded that they confine and ship their Jewish population to concentration camps, the Bulgarian populace rallied in defense of the Jews, and they were not imprisoned. A very brave stand.

    it has a post WWII / Cold War era paint job , these were in use up until around the late 1980's or little later

    I should have noticed the dark green paint. Looks like a new helmet liner, too.
