    Default Is this helmet WWII era?

    Hello
    I have the opportunity to purchase a SSH-40 Soviet helmet, but I am unsure of whether it dates to the WWII years or post. On the inside of the helmet there is a circle around a star with the the number "77" inside the star, and the numbers "815" below the circle and star, all stamped in what looks like black ink. Do these markings indicate WW2 era or post war? Any help will be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Is there any sure fire way to tell if it is wwii era? The liner is the 3 pad leather one and the chin strap is the older canvas style. Is there any features to look for that makes it a post wwii one?

    Does the chinstrap have split pins or is it stitched to the bales?..

    I believe the chin straps are pinned to the bales.

    What price is the seller asking?

    I ask this as if it is priced over $20.00 U.S., I would advise you either research it yourself, or get some images to show us, BEFORE you buy or commit to buy.

    Thats it...

    No doubt LMZ 1946-1950,most of these normally have the ink circle with the star and the re-issued date..........
