    Thanks for the info Ade.

    I got it over here on a Flohmarkt before the Euro is all I can remember. I only took because I couldn't find anything German that day!



    Is it any good for swapping?

    Ade,

    As you might have thought, I like German stuff, any fair trade considered, I like paperwork, helmets anything, point is you would obviously appreciate it more than I would, so it would be better off with you. What you got?

    PS I posted a gravity knife thread on the relivant forum I would value your thoughts on the Bakelite grips? I have no idea have you seen it before?

    Yes, by all means do so if possible. Unfold the liner and have a look at the back side. There is probably a liner size marking stamped to the back of one of the liner fingers and possibly another type stamp as well. Given that it is a shell size 2, you should find a 56 or 58 stamped on the reverse of one of the fingers.

    Mike as requested and well predicted a large 56 on one of the fingers.

    Hello
    I am looking for information about a helmet I have in my possession. I was told it comes from Karelen as a war trophy.
    So the question is, is it genuine? What is a estimated value?
    Would be grateful for information.
    Thanks in advance / Otec

    Greetings,

    Fine helmet you have there... It is genuine and an early example of Ssh-39 so a souvenir of the Russo-Finnish battles is very likely. This particular version is pretty uncommon. A quick glance would suggest this is the earliest white, natural leather variant. However from its construction I suspect this one is a more uncommon type. There is a white synthetic leather variation you do not see very often that was made before the more common black, synthetic material in this configuration. A look at the back side of the white liner material would confirm this.

    Value? dependent on condition really. I have seen these early ones fetch $700-$900 USD recently.
