GWH-0058 WWII German re-purposed Soviet M36 Helmet for the Luftschutz

Quantity: 
Price:  $999.95
 
Item #22739

This is a Ssh39 Soviet helmet that was captured / reissued to the German Luftschutz to be used as an air raid/ flak helper helmet.  Captured Soviet helmets were commonly re-purposed by the Germans for non-front line use. Helmets like this are very hard to find today in their original condition.  The helmet has been re-painted to a darker color than the original Soviet helmet and the Luftschutz decal applied to the front. Additionally the liner appears to be a custom replacement by the Germans.  The original Soviet helmet date stamp is not visible as the helmet has been repainted, however the original metal stamping is still visible as 3a1357.  The 3 is the helmet size as size 3 of 4 total sizes, so it is overall a pretty big helmet.  The original Soviet Ssh36 has an unmistakable shape which makes this helmet very unique. The top had a small comb which covered a ventilation hole. The interior liner was made of a cloth stocking with an oil cloth sweatband, there is a corrugated metal band which doubled as ventilation and shock absorption, an idea taken from the WWI French Adrian helmet.  Very cool and rare helmet!
