Russian helmets are not rare, but to find one which dates from the 1940's is very difficult. This helmet survived time in some quiet place where it got its beautiful patina. This is a first generation 12 bolt helmet of 1942, the difference with later 12 bolt helmets is that the communications- and air connections are separated (on later helmets these are combined in 1 unit). And the exhaust valve at this helmet is adjustable where the later exhaust valves are not adjustable. A very rare helmet in a beautiful untouched condition: see photo's. Price €2875,- plus shipping.
