    Here is a SSH 36 Lysva made in 1940 according to the ink stamping. In the shell the number 3 4993 is stamped (not sure if I see it correct). It has a (early version I think) strap and no liner. The helmet has been painted over 'copper-colored' brown. What is your opinion about this helmet and the overpaint ? Camo purpose, other?

    Helmet is gorgeous, the shell, ink stamp and chinstrap all look original to me. Sorry, I have no expertise to say anything about the paint though.

    Very nice indeed.
    Is the color not just due to the aging?
    If you look at the inside you see the différence between the interior part and external part
