    Hi,
    My recent helmet from a OEF veterans.
    The helmet is for Soviet military police. It was found on the ground in Afghanistan.

    Nice find. It is neat that Soviet era items still can be found all over Afghanistan.

    Very nice helmet. I have seen lots of left over Soviet stuff in Afghanistan but not many helmets like this example. Thanks for sharing it.

    A lot of the Russian helmets I saw over therewere turned into some kind of CONAN helmet with antlers and chainmail and sold off as a souveigner. I did find a Hind pilot armor helmet cover but the inside foam was dry rotted and the cloth cover was missing but the outside still had a nice look. I sold it on epay a while back.

    Collectors should be aware that prior to 2010 there were vendors selling Russian type helmets at the larger base PXs (ie. Kabul, Bagram, Khandahar). These helmets were brought into the country by the conex load and sold for approx $20 each. This is not a rumor I knew the one vendor who showed me the conex and gave me the helmet while I was on Bagram. Their contract had ended and they were getting rid of everything at rock bottom prices because they had to leave the country.

    My helmet was not purchased on a base. It comes from a village found during a search.
