    Hello Keith, welcome to the forum! This looks to be a ssh39 and dated 1941, I think. Just from my limited knowledge . I'm sure experts will help out more. I'm glad you finally joined you will like it here.
    Dean.

    As Dean previously stated a good 1941 production ssh39. If I am not mistaken am3 means it was made at the Lysma Metallurgical Factory.

    I found out that the Lysma Metallurgical Factory (LMZ), was located in the western Ural mountain region. It produced some 10,000,000 helmets during The Great Patriotic War, being out of range of aerial bombing......KC

    Hi,

    for me this liner is a replacement , rivets crushed visible on the outside of the helmet , same thing for the chinstrap , typical postwar .

    I've seen this type of stamp being faked and Dom's comment is right, in my opinion. I think, that this is a post war Ssh-40 made to look like a war era one.
