    The number on the back is 2 5203 and one of the stamps looks like it says CT 58. Anyone know what those mean?

    I think what Dom says is that the helmet is made in the Stalingrad Factory in 1958. That would explain the "CT58". So original but postwar and WW2.

    Thank you for the info Dom. I learned something new today

    Could this be a Russian Victory Day parade helmet? I noticed that the Helm these guys are wearing look like Ssh 40s with a leather chinstrap like mine.

    Edit: Nevermind those are Ssh 60s.

    as for your helmet the liner pads look similar to what you might find on a swiss m18 ,how they got there is anybodys guess but it is sure a good topic for discussion

    Yea that's what is bugging me haha. I went back a couple weeks later and the same seller had a Spanish modelo Z with a Luftwaffe sticker on it so for all I know he did it but I'm not sure. I thought it may have been done in Finland because their helms used that liner but my helmet is post war.

    I think the leather liner pads came out of a Swedish M26, the liner was probably put there by a collector, not original to the helmet.
