Type of Manufacture: Original Items

Original Item: In another military antiques coup, IMA has just acquired the last of all the known WWII helmet stocks from the government of Finland. These helmets are 100% genuine WW2 issue Hungarian M38.

In world war two Hungary was an ally of Germany. The Germans allowed and assisted the Hungarians in copying their design of the M35 steel helmet. Therefore, the WWII produced M38 Hungarian steel helmet is nearly identical to the German WWII M35. Both have the same shape, riveted ventilation holes, and the classic rolled edge. The minor differences between the M38 helmet and the German M35 was the liner system, liner pin position, as well as the addition of a small horizontal rectangular carrying hook above the back brim of the Hungarian helmet used to attach the helmet to a backpack when on the move.

The Model 1938 Hungarian helmet was one of the most common types used by the Finnish Army during the Continuation War of 1941-44. The Finns originally wanted to acquire the German M35 during the Winter War of 1939-40 to supplement their old stock of German WWI M17 & M18 helmets however, the German government refused the order and sent it to the Hungarians instead. Apparently this was done for political reasons as the Germans were technically still “allied” to the Soviets (who the Finns were fighting) during the Winter War of 1939-40. Though the order was placed in December 1939, the first helmet wasn’t shipped until after the end of the Winter War in March 1940, which is why they were used extensively during the Continuation War of 1941-44.

Styles and colors (Field Grey, Field Green) may vary slightly so please see photos for variation examples. Each helmet is offered in good to very good condition, but will show storage wear, minor paint chips and scratches, and occasionally a small ding but all are free of major dents or imperfections. After all, these are real WWII manufactured and issued military helmets that were used by actual soldiers in the defense of their country. Additionally the Finnish Army used some of these helmets from WWII up until the early 1970s.

The companies that manufactured the M38 were Mavag of Budapest, Weiss of Csepel, and Gyori Vaggon-es Gepgyar. We believe that all these shells have maker and shell size markings stamped to the inside of the brim. However, because these helmets have been painted and repainted, in some cases, multiple times, it is impossible for us to see if each one is marked without using paint stripper or a wire wheel. So, if you absolutely must have a visible marking then please request it by choosing the special hand select option and accept that we will have to remove the paint in order to do so, which may effect the aesthetic appeal of the helmet.

The leather liners and chinstraps are a mix, many were made in Finland for the Finnish army after WWII, some however, may have the original Hungarian made leather liner, choose the special hand select if you’d like us to choose you one of those. Liners also very in form from a Finnish M55 style to a German M35 style to a WWI three sided style.

Sizing- we offer a range of sizes, but we sell these helmets based on the interior liner size, not shell size. However, a general rule of thumb is; size 56cm liners are usually inside size 62 shells, we only honor requests for liner size.

This is a rare chance to own a genuine WWII M38 Hungarian made German type M35 WWII helmet at far less than half the price of a German manufactured wartime one.

History of the German & Finnish Alliance- In 1938 Finland became very concerned with Stalin's Soviet expansionism and turned to Great Britain and France for support. Both Countries were under supplied themselves so Finland, perhaps reluctantly turned to Nazi Germany for aid. Hitler was swift to assist supplying great quantities of materiel including thousands of German Battle Helmets.

The Russians invaded Finland in 1939 driving deep into the country. The Finns resisted with amazing tenacity that has been the subject of legend and the wonderful WW2 Movie "THE WINTER WAR" (offered by IMA). The Russians paid a very heavy price and sued for peace in early 1940 keeping the invaded areas of Finland. Finland totally exhausted agreed with great regret.

In the summer of 1941 Hitler’s Nazi War Machine invaded the Soviet Union driving everything before them. Finland whom had received so much help from Germany then rose up and drove the Soviet presence out of Finland. However Finland would not "invade" the Soviet Union, they declared themselves not to be aggressors.

It is true however that the Germans recruited great numbers of Finnish "Volunteers" for their "SS UNITS" that did invade Mother Russia but that was true of all the overrun European Countries and even some others, still independent including apparently England and the United States, although these number were said to be very low.

At the close of WW2 with Germany defeated Finland was highly penalized by the Soviet Union, again gave up the lost territory of 1939/40 but did manage to retain it's independence unlike so much of Eastern Europe.

How We Sell How we sell on is a bit different than most vendors- WHAT YOU SEE IS NOT WHAT YOU GET.

Unlike single item sale listings most of our original items are not one-of-a-kind. Meaning we have multiples, so the images you are viewing will not be the exact item that you will receive. The images do, however, represent a typical example.

In fact, the photos of our products displayed on are never the very best examples of what we have. We make a concerted effort to photograph average examples. This way, you can expect to receive an item that is at least as good as the one photographed, unless we specify otherwise. The only time you will get an item exactly as it is photographed is when an item is listed as "New", "New Made", "One Only" or "one-of-a-kind".

Let us explain in even more detail:

Every item listed in our store is described in one of two ways:"Original / Used" or "New Made / Brand New". Original items are sometimes referred to as Military Antiques, Military Collectibles, or simply Militaria. New Made items are sometimes referred to as Replicas or Reproductions. The condition of New Made items is always the same; while the condition and even sometimes features of original items vary greatly.

We display multiple images and write detailed descriptions of the products we sell in order to provide the customer with as much information as possible so you know what to expect when you open the box.

Because so much of what we sell is original antique merchandise there will always be some differences between anything photographed and what you receive. Differences are generally minor and can include; markings, dates, size, color, overall condition and more. In an effort to avoid returns, please help us determine what you want by describing your preferences through a comment when placing your order.

We always make our very best effort to satisfy your needs, but there are no guarantees, which is why we have a 7 business day return policy, please review our return policy on item listings and listed inside our store.

Buying parts and accessories for antique items- Please remember that antiques such as old guns, field gear, helmets etc... are not and were not all the same, while our part or accessory may fit 99% of the pieces it was designed for, there are some variations it may not fit. Please do your research that the item you are buying from us will work for you BEFORE ordering, or if you won't know until you get it, that is fine, but do not expect a reimbursement for any shipping charges in the event of a return.
