Mannet,

your question refers to the steel helmet of the "Kasernierte Volkspolizei" after the year 1952, right ?

Kasernierte Volkspolizei https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kasernierte_Volkspolizei

Did I understand your question correctly ?

Another photo from the same period of time, with the former "StG.44"

hi Hans,
no, I'm thinking about that, what was used as m1956 (eventually with some modifications):
in wikipedia it's described as m45... so maybe I remembered the name wrong...

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/M45_(Stahlhelm)

"Lediglich einige hundert Helme wurden zur Truppenerprobung ausgegeben." - so it was used only for tests...
