    Default The Ssh39 Twin Helmets

    Hi fellow collectors ,

    I thought that it would be nice to show two Ssh 39 helmets that
    found their way to my humble collection.

    These helmets show quite a lot of similarities :

    Both are made by LMZ in 41r
    Both show the same ageing and wear on the shell
    Both have the same shade of kraska paint
    Both have the same kind of damage to the chinstrap

    The helmets have , however, different shell sizes the one being a poct 2 and the other a poct 3.

    And finally -to my great surprise - both helmets have the same
    number stamped into the neck as you can see in the last pic.


    Best regards :

    After being involved in some very nice discussion about
    the stampings and markings of russian helmets I searched my data and stumbled across this pics that I have saved.
    Very interresting as this helmet that has been for sale by a russian dealer features again the same batch number as my "twins"
    interresting ......

    Regards

    Thanks Dom !
    I really think that it is time to start looking at all
    the stamps more closely.
    So nothing special about the 735 stamp I guess..


    Thanks

    Bernhard
