    Default SSh36 chinstrap

    Hey everyone, page 34 of Dr. Clawson's book on Russian helmets refers to five different kinds of Ssh36 chinstraps. None of them are like the one pictured here. Does anyone know if this is one of the original chinstraps on an Ssh36? Clawson does mention a Spanish-only strap that had a prong that fit through holes, but if I'm not mistaken that Spanish chinstrap is leather, not cloth. I searched the posts on this forum and didn't see any others like this. Any insights are appreciated. Thanks.

    .: World War Helmets - Casque Ssh 36 :.
    It says here helmets made or reworked during the siege of Leningrad had leather chinstraps!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Not original - my opinion. MX-mas!

    Unconventional but interesting

    Thanks for the opinions everyone, after thinking about it further and looking at more pictures online and the link Gunny provided, I don't think it's original either. Not necessarily meant to deceive, as it looks old and could be period from something else, just not from the factory.
