Here is a lovely Ssh-39 that I am cutting loose from my personal collection. This helmet is a straight up, factory configured Ssh-39. The paint, liner, and chinstrap are all original to the helmet. The LMZ factory stamp is clear, and the condition is very good overall. The one unknown about this helmet is that there is no metal termination on the chinstrap. This liner type generally is the start of the use of such metal terminations. However, the long side of this chinstrap does not appear to be shortened, and there has clearly never been a metal tip on the end of what looks to be a full length section. There is also a light finish stitch in the end of the web. I suspect that this helmet was made without one as 1940 was the transition period to this final Ssh-39 liner configuration.
