    Any new dealers out there?

    Hi Will Like you: collecting Mongolian ODM but difficult to find dealers
  3. Hi You will be surprised, maybe, to learn that a Belgian dealer sold a lot of USSR and Chinese fakes soinces the 80', from the Netherlands to France..... Where are they disseminated now...?
  4. Hi The officer helmets do not wear two identical Kokarden The officer helmets do have stars insteed of nuts and screws at the base of the spike The rosette, fixing the chinscale are for officer. It should be steel screws and nuts. For me, this helmet is mixing pieces which should not be mixed. And no explanation to be found with any war stories. Furthermore, I do not see a Dragoon helmet, which has square leather visor. All in all, if you happy with your helmet, everything goes well.
  5. Hi Chinscales are OFF type. I can't say more about the helmet.
  6. Hi For me, the Kokarden (officer type,) and the chinscales should not be mounted on this helmet. The KB picture shows a genuine OR's M67. Yours is quite different.
  7. Hi Are you sure that 2 officer "Kokarden" are the best regulation for this helmet????
