    Hey everybody,

    Recently purchased this SSh-39 on e-bay, what are your opinions? The helmet is coming from the Czech republic, which now worries me that it may be a fake made out of a Vz-53.

    Not keen on the stamp, it appears to be applied over rust. No expert though please wait for other people!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    The frontal star seems to be fresher than the sandwich that I packed for lunch today...

    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

    Paint, stamp, and liner are all fake...

    Stamp does not conform to original in this style. A good attempt, but something is not right here. It just looks too "Dense" for lack of better word.

    Liner construction is not correct:

    1) it has a Czech "saw tooth" felt pad in it.
    2) The rivets holding the liner cloth to the band are not correct and look to be Czech as well.
    3) The interior side of the rivet holding the liner bracket to the shell shows something other than standard Soviet production for this model.
    4) The sweatband material is not what is expected
    5) Liner draw string should be a flat string, not a round string.
