    i believe the shell could be an original Ssh39. the rest, including the paint/red star/liner, were recently made. unless the Czechs also used acceptance stars as seen on this one under its front visor... can someone please confirm or deny this? thank you
    the czech helmets did sometimes have the frontal star ,here's my reissued Ssh40 for czech army ,the original soviet liner rivits are now redundant Czechoslovak vz53 /strichtarn cover
