Used Bulgarian Military WWII Helmet is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great price but to small I ware a 7-1/2 hat an this was to small and had a long crease on top from back to front. There was no chin strap on one side and a pice of one on the other, so this will be a item i can trade at a swap meet or i might just keep it as a pice of history.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How About A Little Head ... ? ... to go in this little helmet? Did not reasonably expect this helmet to fit my giant squash, although with the liner band and suspension removed the steel shell will go on. Suspect that I can probably rig something up with one of the many repro liner and suspension replacement kits that are out there. It's not like I have any shortage of military helmets, but the first rule of The Funky Hat Club is that if you want it to count, Your Hat Must Fit.The headband and suspension in the helmet illustrated here is attached to the helmet shell in a manner similar to that used in the Swiss M-71: the steel liner band is riveted to four extension arms which are in turn riveted to the helmet shell. The one I received is slightly different: the liner band is attached to the helmet shell with four split pins a la the German Stahlhelms. This actually works out better for me, as the liner is easily removed by unfastening the split pins, as opposed to having to drill out the four rivets.The leather liner and suspension were in okay-ish shape - a little scuffed up but not cruddy and icky, the chinstrap not bad but the retaining loop is broken, and the name of the last soldier who had the helmet is written on the leather suspension in ball-point pen in Cyrillic characters.The steel shell itself is in very good condition - the paint is scuffed and scratched here and there and there's some minor rusty spots, but there are no dings or dents and the helmet is in good serviceable condition.I'm very pleased overall, especially for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A really good value for the money. Altho it can't be seen in the photo, it has a dorsal fin running along the top from front to rear, so unless you're a helluva sheet metal guy, there's no easy way to turn this into a German stahlhelm. Wish it had Bulgarian colors or an emblem across the front.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The helmet was in fine shape. Hard to believe that it is the best part of 70 years old. It reminds me a little of a german helmet of that time period. That is understandable seeing that Bulgaria was a part of the axis at that time.
