M36 Bulgarian helmet
BULGARIA M36C front
This is an example of an original issue, probably pre-WW2, M36C. The shell is of course identical to the post-war used M36C, but the liner is quite different.
This original condition M36C is some 50 grammes lighter than the refurbished one shown below - can that simply be down to a coat and paint and a different liner.

BULGARIA M36C liner
See the four metal straps securing the liner. Not present on the A and B models.
The chinstrap is much narrower than on the relined examples.

BULGARIA M36C liner detail
As you can see here the liner is constructed by sewing small lobes on to a broad headband, quite different from the one-strip liner of the later refurbishments.

BULGARIA M36C stamp detail
Ths is the original Bulgarian acceptance stamp, unfortunately unreadable in this case (even if I could read Bulgarian...).

BULGARIA M36C front
There are three variations of the basic M36, the A, B and C. All superficially similar, but with distinct differences.
The A has a rolled edge, is made of heavier-gauge metal, and has a rather more evident crest. The B is similar to the A except it has no rolled edge, and the C has no rolled edge and a less obvious crest, as well a different method of fixing the liner.
Importantly the number and position of external rivets for the liners is quite different for each sub-type.

BULGARIA M36C side
This M36C has been completely refurbished since its first issue around 1938. It has been repainted and has a new liner, and gives no sense of having been issued.
That being said, the M36C (and possibly some A and B types) is still in current frontline use by the Bulgarian armed forces, along with the later M51 type and a small number of modern ballistic-fibre helmets.

BULGARIA M36C liner
This is new liner - the original has more distinctively pointed ends to the lobes. See example above.
Note the four internal metal straps which hold the liner band - these are not present in the A and  B model.
