Hi Phill !
It's a Russian SSH-36.........
Couldnt have said it better myself. Might be missing the liner, due to the small hole (pin missing)
Thanks Guys, unusual shape, did it have a specific purpose? Flak Gunner or something?
No, just the earlier version of the Russian WW2 lid. This shape can get abit pricey to, especially when its complete. Been looking for a nice one myself ....
What do you call "pricey" Bud?
Put it this way, I cant get a relic one for under $100 before post. In good condition $400 - $500 usually.
Last one I saw go, with liner, sold for $750 US. Don't know of that's the going rate but it was the eBay rate that day....
I saw a guy with one at the MAX show in October, who was jumping for joy because he "only paid $1,000".
Looking for WWII U.S. dog tags
