Soviet Ssh-40…   This Helmet is the archetype construction of the 1944-1945 period, that is it has the undyed, natural colored chinstrap.  It has the proper LMZ factory stamp and is a Size 1.  All liner pads are intact and of the proper wartime material and construction. The shell retains a lot of original paint and plenty of patina.  The top of the dome there is a stress fracture, which is not uncommon on these size 1 shells.  Despite the fracture, this helmet is a textbook specimen of a late war Ssh-40, and one we can offer at an attractive price.
