Russian SSh36 Helmet

Description

Russian / Soviet SSh36 (СШ-36) Helmet. The SSh-36 helmet was designed by Aleksandr A. Shvartz. Its large front rim and wide flares over the ears provided good protection for the wearer. The German M35, introduced a year before the Russian SSh-36, served as a model for the development of the SSh-36. The SSh-36 was also fitted with a comb on top, which allowed for ventilation. The helmet was originally painted in olive green and complete with the original red painted star on front, see photos. The helmet probably was once repainted in black, the black overpaint has been carefully removed from the outside but is unfortunately still present on the inside. The helmet is complete with its original cloth type pattern liner, the liner is in slightly damaged condition. Hard to find original SSh-36 helmet in good used condition!
