Possibly Soviet Helmet in Need of Identification? Does anybody know what this is? :)

Article about: IMO it could actually be a WW2 Chinstrap. It looks like the ZKO standard WW2 one. What color are the stitching on the CS? Regards, Lars

    Default Possibly Soviet Helmet in Need of Identification? Does anybody know what this is? :)

    Hi all,

    Im new here . I have had this helmet (pictured) for years and I am having trouble identifying it. I wondered if any of you have any ideas?
    I can take pictures of any other bits that you need to see.

    Soviet Ssh40, I think. I am still a bit of a rookie with these. Looks like a 1953 dated example. 3KO is the red october factory in Stalingrad I think.

    Oh thankyou so much. Do you have any idea of its rarity?

    I would think not so rare, but it is in really nice condition. Ade S and Datrus are two guys on here that really know their Ssh*t when it comes to these. Sorry I couldn't resist that.

    I imagine they will find the thread sooner or later, they both visit the Soviet section often I think. There are many other guys who will no doubt be able to tell you more also.

    Welcome to the forum by the way.

    I think Krad's got it. I believe it's a 1953 example of an Ssh-40, made at the Red October factory in Stalingrad.

    So far it looks OK. The ZKO stamp looks a little different from the ones i have seen on the 52 models, but there are variations of course. It would be good with a close up on the chinstrap. The part i can see looks a little strange. They used 2 kinds of webbing on these and the part i can see does not look like one of them. Correction. $ chinstraps were used...

    Regards, Lars
