    Hi friends,

    I finally purchased my first Ssh36 lid, after being on the hunt for quite some time. How did I do?

    I assume it was used during the Winter war due to the liner being removed. The chinstrap looks original to me.

    How about the red star flash and the paint, all original?

    Nice find but it looks pretty glossy, has it been oiled?...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    looks good - they are really hard to find in original setup - most are messed with
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    well done on finding a nice example mads nice to see it with the original chinstrap tooi seem to be in the minority of people who actually find these very pleasing to the eye, its also nice to see a legible number stamp ,as others have stated it looks like its had a heavy coating of oil ,im sure if your patient it will become less apparent over time but if it troubles you i suppose you could sparingly use a mild solvent based degreaser but wether this would remove any remaining paint im not sure but if it was me id leave it be and put it on display in a stable environment ,thanks for showing ,james

    Thanks guys.

    James, actually the oil bothers me a bit, but Im also scared to damage the paint if I try, so I will just leave it for now.

    i wouldnt worry mads ,really what harm can oil do apart from inhibit further corrosion which is why the prevous owner did this ,lets just focus more on what a real nice helmet it is ,again well done on finding a nice example

    A very nice helmet indeed Mads as to removing the oil you might try giving it a bath in a little dish soap and water this may help some with out causing damage to the finish.

    Regards Mark
    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!
