    It's a Czech, not Russian.

    As stated, it's a Chech vz53 helmet, late issue as identified by the chin strap. Soviet helmets do not use the German style liners, most variations have 3 or 4 pads, depending on the model #.

    From the exterior the looks of the Czech vz53 and the Soviet Ssh39 are all but identical...it's the interior that tells the story!

    Glad I could help, it doesn't happen too often.......

    just to clarify further this is the model 53/80 its essentially the vz53 shell but with a 4 point nylon chinstrap offering greater stability i i cant tell from the pics but it should have a small leather chinstrap ,cheers james

    Yup. Three rivets for the Ssh-39. Six for the Ssh-40.
