Czech M52 steel helmet, surplus
The Czech helmet is modeled directly after the Soviet SSh40, but with different lining. The chinstrap is either nylon or leather, depends on when the pot is made. All of these are old Cold War surplus.
A very standard looking East Bloc helmet, the Czech pot is a cheap alternative for the more pricey Soviet SSh40. You want a cheap steel helmet, buy this one. We get these with a three-point nylon chinstrap complex or a very traditional leather two-point system. Lately the leather ones have been way more common, which is good because they look better.
Czech army surplus
In used condition, and sometimes not very pretty either - prepare to clean it up a bit. Not sold for any real protective purposes of course, only as a collectible/costume item.

The liner I received was very tiny. The adjustment is thoroughly seized, but I'll update if I can ever get it to move. Even still, there does not seem to be too much to move. I believe the liner is adjustable, but likely came in sizes, like 54-56, 57-59, etc.
The leather is VERY dry. Neats foot oil is a must.
Update: There are 3 snaps/buttons at the back of the liner to connect the leather to the liner band as you expand it. I now see mine is at its widest (and still stuck there) and it measures at 56. There is an ink stamp in the shell that reads 54. At first I thought it was a date stamp, but now I think it means its a small 54 (expandable to 56) liner.

Like the other couple of steel lids I have it's surprisingly light to wear, especially compared to modern ballistic nylon/kevlar helmets.
For the price you can't go far wrong especially if you have a small head.
