ID:	341386Greetings,

    Found this helmet today and was a little puzzeled on the specifics. It looks to be civil defense of some sort but matches nothing I have or could find on the net. Perhaps early civil defense. The pictures should say everything. There are no markings to be found. There seems to be one faded ink stamp, under the leather, that reminds me of Czech or russian but its not readable. There are no holes or rivets and the color is OD instead of traditional white. If someone has info, please lead me to other pictures of similar pieces. I was hopeing that it was a Leningrad pan factory helmet but there seems to be one picture on the internet of a LPF helmet and they dont match. If anyone has a REAL picture of a LPF helmet, please share. Right now, I think of Leningrad pan factory helmets the same as I do unicorns and the Easter bunny.

    The other red pieces I am not positive about yet. I believe they are British or French collar tabs but I am not sure. The others are just US WW2 collar discs. Thanks for any info.

    FG.

    I can only tell you that the collar tabs are not British.

    The top 4 collars are US ,1-Chemical Corps (up side down) , 2-Armored Force , 3-Signal Corps , 4-Infantry Corps . Not sure of there date , #2 is modern, at least not WW2 .
    Hope this helps .

    I only have one small photo of a LPF helmet and it looks to have rivets holding the liner in , but Russian stuff isn't my thing . Try posting only the helmet and ask if it a LPF helmet and you might get a better answer .

    Thanks for the response, the differences are the odd part. Mine is OD and the liner attaches unlike anything Ive seen. Ive seen one British civil defense helmet that was close in design. Oh well, Ill keep looking for answers.
