    I have some M53's similar to the lower one but with a nylon 4 point chinstrap. A later issue I imagine.

    hi gunny these former soviet ssh40 turn up from time to time and are a bit different from the norm and andy ,i believe the examples you own are designated m53/80 and as youve guessed introduced in 1980 the 4 point chinstrap offered more stability thanks for dropping by ,regards james

    I have one of these as well, they are old soviet SSH40 shells. Mine bears a small star under the visor, and a serial number stamped into the back. Nice collection James, now you need to get yourself a VZ32
