    Ivan, it's normal chinstrap for mid to late war for soviet helmets, I think soviets save money on that

    Hello Soljenitsyne, very nice and also clean Ssh40 Helmet especialy the chinstrap !! extremly white in colour which i have never seen before !! chinstrap just seems a little to clean for age of helmet not sure if its camera shot (Pic) or lighting, but i would expect a little yellowish toning to occur in the past 65 years ??

    90% of helmet was made by LMZ (Lysvinskiy Metallurgicheskiy Zavod), and 70% of the helmets I saw was with that kind of chinstrap
