Details

The East German Steel Helmet is an authentic East German military helmet. When East Germany collapsed and German unification was started, all of the relics from the Cold War became undesired to be worn by security services. These helmets were easily one of the most identifiable articles with the East German guards who patrolled the Berlin Wall daily and unfortunately shot and killed many East Germans who attempted to cross into the West. Once unification came, all existing unissued helmets were put into storage until they were later sold as surplus.

Now that the Cold War is long over, relics like these Vopo helmets are becoming more rare every day. Once there were mountains of authentic East German surplus and today there are tiny pockets available. With these helmets being easily identified with this turbulent period for Germany, they are going to become more and more collectible as the years go by. Today you can not only find unissued condition helmets but at a great price. In the coming years the demand will continue to increase with supply fixed so prices will rise.

Outstanding
A great piece of History! And by all means as cheap as you'll find them! The one i received was clean, with only the lightest of surface markings you could easily wipe off at any time. The leather interior was soft, and easily adjustable! A great piece, I might buy a few more!

Nice helmet.
This is a good helmet for costumes, I'll only wear it sparingly so the price is a bit much for me. Overall a good Cold-War item.

AWESOME
This helmet from East Germany was brand new as I received it. It is also much more comfortable than any other steel helmet I have. There were no blemishes in the paint, and the liner was mint. There wasn't even a surplus smell! Excellent product.
