SSH 40? Odd liner solid red star

    Default SSH 40? Odd liner solid red star

    I picked this up about 8 years ago. Not really sure about it, the liner has a clothe sweat band and oil cloth sack - reversed due to supply issues when made (?), a web chinstrap, what appears to be mid war dark green repaint, and a solid Red Star on the forehead. No ink stamps visible anywhere, but a small 5 pointed star on the under side of the visor and what looks to be "4261" stamped on the rear underside of the apron. I think it is WWII, but am not by any means knowledgeable about Soviet headgear. Any comments are welcome. Thanks in advance, Jim G.

    Hi Jim, the shell is the Ssh39 pattern due to the high placed rivets. The Ssh40 has them lower down the shell.

    I have never seen a liner made like this before. I also have concerns regarding the die stamped star and lot serial number. I have a feeling this is a Czech helmet which has been played with.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade. I guess I should stay in an area where I have some experience. When I pulled this one off of the shelf this morning I had my doubts. Shortly after I bought this one I bought another "SSH 40", relying on poor pictures, and received a Polish lid. Finally 3 years ago I scored a correct SSH39 reissued with a Luftschutz decal. That one I know is right. I will post it sometime soon. Thanks again for the information. Cheers, Jim G.

    Dimas, I will add more pictures in separate posts as I get an error message if I attached too many to one post. Thanks for your help. Jim G.
