    Got this some years back but never researched it, it was suppose to be an M40 Russian helmet, but recently I heard it might be Czech. Detailed identification would be great! Also is the 53 printed on the inside the date?

    I believe this is the M53, the nylon chinstrap would make it a later issue.

    this one has the late style green nylon Y chin straps and would make it a later model Czech M53 / 80

    the number 53 is the date the shell was manufactured but it has been upgraded with the 1980's nylon Y straps

    nice lid a trench dude ,externally the same as the vz 53 but as stated the latter version 4 point chinstrap with leather chin section ,i believe the only reason for the upgrade to the chin strap was to aid stability for the wearer ,definately not soviet ,more soviet block
