ssh39 with german decal
I've been approached by another collector who has found this helmet in a basement. Finding place is the isle of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea.
I'm very sceptical about this item, as I havent been able to find sources describing similar helmets. My first impression was, that someone had a bit of fun creating this.
I know that some ssh39 was reissued as Luftschutz, but I've never seen this before.
First of all: Is it a ssh39 or a czech M53?
- Liner looks homemade
- No ink stamps visible
Thanks for you opinions to this,

I've never seen one with a heer decal on it before and that sort of worries me but the decal kind of looks good
The liner is correct for an Ssh 39. I like this one. Jim G.
There were instances where Soviet helmets were used for the Army. I know that Finnish Armored Troops had some.

I don't really want to, but I do like it
I too have never seen this configuration but it certainly appears to have been this way for some time. I hope it is good but I have no idea. Leon.
