    Default Ssch 40 war time or not?

    Dear All,

    What would you say, is it a war time production helmet? There are no stamps apart from X-2 number pressed into the hull.

    Please let me know what you think.

    Thanks a lot!

    Regards,

    Evgeni

    I am far from an expert on these, but I have to say that the liner looks very new and doesn't look like it has aged along with the rest of the helmet...

    It has been repainted and the chinstrap should not be leather as far i remember. It should be made of canvas. Could be a reissue WW2 of course. Let's wait for some more opinions

    I have read that markings in the actual steel rather than ink stamps, indicated a post war shell? I could be wrong, Russian lids are not really my thing.

    its a puzzler the shell looks to have ww2 period soviet green on the inside shell but the liner flaps appear to be vinyl like the more modern soviet ssh 68 i wonder if the hungarians used soviet shells postwar before they produced the m50 does it have a star stamp under the front rim i cant tell from the pics
