    Default Kaska 3KO from 54r

    My fellow collectors ,

    I have a great interrest in soviet helmets that is not limited to
    the WWII issue helmets.
    Here we have a nice and from my observation not so often seen
    1954 dated example that has been made by the 3KO maker.
    I especially like the brown artificial leather.
    Am I right by assuming that 3KO means something like "red october factory "

    In another thread one collector asked about the approximate date
    when the chinstraps were sewn on to the bales and not longer fixed with those small split rivets.
    For a very long time I thought that from around 1953 produced helmets started to show bar tacked (sewn on) chinstraps.
    Now I have got this 54r with split pins....

    You are correct, 3KO (Zavod Krasniy Oktyabr ) Red October factory.

    I think the chinstraps are sewn on helmets product by the CT factory (Stalingradskiy Traktorskiy Zavod) only 1954 to 1960.
    I've never seen a helmet 3K0 mint with the sewn chinstraps .

    Hi,
    I had a helmet made in the factory "Red October", these helmet were with the sewn chinstraps . I can not remember exactly the year of production, about the end of the fifties and early sixties.

    Sorry guys, I threw this helmet when my relatives drove me out home.
    And it was not the only Soviet helmet threw me.
