    How do you do!
    So far I can just recognize the 39s from the 40s from the rivet placement but other than that, it's a crapshoot! Does this helmet look alright? probably postwar, right?
    Is it even Russian made? The seller is offering it for $60 with $35 shipping but I'd probably throw an offer of 40-45 or something. If it turns out cool.
    I've requested more, better pictures of stampings if it has any.

    Thanks! it's because of the funky canvas liner and leather chinstrap, is that correct?

    oh! i didn't notice that at first! so russian helmets don't have the D-ring styled chinstrap bales, duly noted!
