    Thanks for the kind input Steve. The seller an older man told me it was german and from WW1. When I told him it was a russian helmet he actually lowered the price .

    No but I would imagine it came to his posession via his father who fought on the nearby Hanko front in 1941.. Itīs been in his posession since the seller was a child (born 1940). Itīs been laying in a woodshed for 40+ yrs and accordingly is very dirty.. I first thought Iīd clean it up but decided not to as itīs in original condition like this.

    Cheers Jan

    I really like the helmet.
    They are very hard to find in the USA.
    Not only in the us, they are almost impossible to find here also.
    Cheers.
