    Cool What kind of Helmet is this?

    Hello
    I need to know what kind of helmet this is. I am thinking it is a russian m/40 from around the WWII era. There are several marking inside the helmet. First there is a number engraved inside near the back it is 1--1852. Then right by that number there is a number that is stamped on, it is 975. Near the side of the helmet there is a faint stamp of a star. Laslty near the crown of the helmet there is a stamp K-7. I would really like to know what kind of helmet this is and the exact year it is. I would also like to know someones opionion of how the helmet was used, was it used in combat ect... Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    Thank-you

    Post war 1938 model, to me.
    I think 1 stands for the size and the 1852 could be 1952 the year of production.
    But I am no expert.

    Hello Camry,

    A couple of pic's of the stamps would clarify matters a lot. Personally I have never heard of a M38 Soviet helmet. The M36, M39, M40 etc are well known models.

    This helmet (M40) looks too well preserved to have seen action.

    Have a look at the following link. It might give you some good info!

    RUSO 40

    Cheers,
    Emile

    Looks like a Hungarian post war lid I had years ago.

    Hi, helmets do not have a Hungarian headdress but imitation leather canvas

    This is a normal SSCH 40 or M 40, that is not a Schwartz helmet
    IMHO the Schwarz name is a kind of fantasy, no any archive information about that was found.
    Your helmet is a post war example
