    Hi Guys.

    Here's my Slovak M-53 Helmet.

    Totally un-isssued,and pretty much how it left the factory,there is a tone of these on the surplus market right now,and these lids can be bought so cheaply.

    Enjoy Wink

    Yes nice helmet vz.53. Federal Czecho-Slovak army were using them in between years 1990-1993. Later used by Slovak and Czech armies. Older type was helmet vz.52. Main difference - using nylon straps instead of leather + ventilation holes were smaller, slightly different type of leather etc ...
