This helmet has patchy light & dark grey paint on the outer shell with the'shadows' of decals on either side just forward of the air vents. This could indicate that it was possibly a WW2 helmet used in Norway post 1945 to late 50's. Normally the Norwegians dyed the leather liner red but this is not the case with this liner. Other countries, including former Eastern Bloc states, Egyptian and S American armies also used WW2 Wehrmacht steel helmets.The inner surface of the shell has dark green paint, possibly post war but the brass rivets are tight to the shell and seem as per factory. A suitable head size for todays re enactor or maniquin display.
