    Hi Richie, your is one from the 5 pieces picked up by me more than 15 years ago, other was in better condition and unfortunately I don't keep one for me. I think one day after, someone will join us, who have one with red star at the front and which I can't save
    Are you referring to another BLACK example? If so, we would love to see it and perhaps be informed as to whom, what, when, & why?

    You got some nice helmets there RichieC. The first one has a great patina, nice liner and a early cloth chinstrap wich is not so common, nice

    The second one seem to me (I may be wrong) to been repainted on the outside or it could have had some type of cover that protected the shell from rust. The inside is rough and has a very nice stamp, chinstrap german?, the strap can be warbooty stolen from a german helmet but who knows.

    The third, the fist ones made were all black so this one is rare, a bit worn and the line a bit broken the insigna partly missing, but still a very wounderfull helmet with great patina

    Thanks Bjorn

    I am still very curious about the star on the second helmet. Without a doubt the helmet saw use in the field. Perhaps it was repainted and the star added for parade use after the war? However, I can not see how that chintzy liner survived years in the field...

    Do you think the chinstrap is indeed German?

    Default Russian helmet WW2 ???

    Hello again,

    I'm not having much success with photos, these are all that would upload.

    I believe Russian but this is not my field, I have had a look through this forum but all the other helmets have a sort of 3 piece liner and this one is more german looking? The rivets are quite high on the dome and there are 3.

    There is a metal stamping at the rear ' 2 5321' and then a black ink stamp which reads POCT 2 in a box underlined with what could be a date 1938 or 9?

    Perhaps someone will know,

    Thanks Jock going for a beer now!

    Hi Jock, yes it is an Ssh39 with the early leather liner. I love it!

    The stampings refer to the shell size which is a "2" and the batch number.

    The ink stamp is for size (POCT in Russian) and size number 2. The date has the letter "r" after it.

    Cheers, Ade.
