    Hi there,

    I would like to hear your opinions on this helmet!
    I think it might be a WW2 periode helmet but am not sure. I don't really like to only go with the ink marking, since it is so easily faked.

    Any information is appreciated!

    Kind regards,

    Lars

    Imo postwar helmet with fake stamp and star.

    Hi Marcel, what makes you think that?

    Liner and chinstrap. Stamp also doesn't look like original ones I have seen. But there are a few collectors here more experienced than me so also wait for their opinions.

    I agree with Marcel. At best it’s a refurbished Ssh-40 with new chinstrap, liner, paint, and Star. I’ve seen stamps that look like that (with л-[year]) but to me it looks fake. The chinstrap is postwar as it has a metal “U” at the end. These were made also during the war, but wartime examples are very rare as they were only made for a short period in 1941.

    Default Ssh-40 helmet

    The Lysva factory stamp is a forgery. Unfortunately, this says enough about the helmet. The outline Soviet star could have been applied by a handy Soviet soldier, but on a SSh-40 helmet I often find them very dubious.

    My advice, buy the book "The history of the russian steel helmet" by Ivan Karabanov.

    I appreciate the insight, thanks for the responses! I will be looking further.

    Hi,

    The shell has been made by Red October factory after war...

    Default SSh-40 helmet shell

    You have an interesting website.
    Can you tell me why you think the helmet shell was made at ZKO and not at LMZ?

    Hi,

    All informations are on the page.
    The steel lot number is typical of 3K0. See pictures ;-)
