    Not sure as to what kind of helmet I have here. At first I thought it may be some type of U.S helmet but think it may be more of a USSR/Warsaw Pact. I can't make out any stamps as the paint is very thick and pliable like latex. The helmet is steel as the paint has lifted and the metal has surface rust.

    can't beat .00, although the EU banks are talking about it but these sell for about $50 tops.

    Sorry, I meant to type $40.00 for the helmet.

    Any idea as to how old it is and where I may be able to find a stamp or makers mark?

    you should find an ink stamp on the inside dome, dated.

    Thank you. I am unable to find a marking as it is covered inside and out with a thick layer of green paint.
