    Default Impulse Buy Helmet

    Hello people. I have just bought this helmet, and I really don't know why as I collect American helmets mainly. It just looked like a "been there" helmet. I have no idea what it is, other than possibly Russian. There are ink stamps but they are badly worn. I cannot see a star under the brim.
    Any information would be gratefully received.

    Kind Regards,

    Andy

    PS, it cost me 30.00.

    Edit: I have spotted a date that looks like 194?

    I think that is some model of Czech helmet, early post WW2 I would say. It looks untouched

    Yes, is a Czech helmet. I have one like this one but some minor changes, interior padding and rivets... i think mine is a later model.

    Cheers

    Hello, Dom.
    I can only really see it under the loupe, it really does look like 1940, the 19 is larger than the 40. I will try to get a pic tomorrow, the light is fading here.

    Best Regards,

    Andy

    I think, after looking at the date stamp with the loupe that it is in fact 1940. My camera is not capable of taking such a macro shot.
    Some questions.
    If the chinstrap has been replaced, what chinstrap is it?
    Why is there a replacement pad in there, and why would have the helmet have been modified in that way?
    Just dumb newbie questions really, but I do like this thing.

    Kind Regards,

    Andy

    It was the chinstrap that made me believe it was a postwar Czech lid, so I'd suggest that origin for the strap. If it's WW2 Soviet then 30 was a great investment mate.

    I do not know this chinstrap, but I do not think it is Czech .

    Made between 1941 and 1945, refurbished in factory between 1948 and 1950.
    Your helmet is dated 1948
