Thanks for your picture. That's a nice example of original wwiii ssh40's stamp.
I think my helmet might be refurbished from wwii shell since there are at least two layers of paints on it. What do you think? thanks.
Hi Kevin ,
It was established that helmets with this marking were made during the war and refurbished by LMZ factory between 1948 and 1950.
Dom is correct. We have talked about this on the forum in the past.
Had good advice? Saved money? Why not become a Gold Club Member, just hit the green "Join WRF Club" tab at the top of the page and help support the forum!
Yes, post 45 Ssh40 with the postwar emblem of Lysva. Chinstrap is also clearly a postwar type.
Thanks again for your useful info with pics. It sounds like my helmet still has some collectable value even it's established and marked in post war, right?
As for the white paint, Do you think they were added later? I am not sure should I leave them alone. Any advise will be appreciated.
