Offered is the Ssh-40 helmet.  This helmet is a textbook specimen in terms of materials and construction  for Ssh-40 made at LMZ in 44 and 45.  This helmet has the proper 3 graylex pads and a white cotton chinstrap to be expected on this vintage LMZ Ssh-40.  The factory stamp is clear and shows a size of 2 and L-44.    The chinstrap on this helmet is a bit short and the buckle has been replaced with a proper type from a postwar chinstrap, but is identical to what would have been on it in every way.  Likewise, the seller informs us that the drawstring is also from a post war helmet.  Again, Identical in every way to what would have been in it originally.  Because it is short, the chinstrap will not display over the helmet visor.
