    The flag decal almost looks like a fake which is why I didn't want to assume it's Belgian but yes, I see there were other give aways. I'm fairly new to the world of helmets! Thanks for your help everyone.

    Not sure that anyone would want to fake a Belgian flag decal.

    I concur with my friends here, a post-war Belgian helmet. These are not faked as far as I know of. Fakers tend to only make fakes of things that are worthwhile, such as German helmets and badges. There's no use in spending 20 Euro to make a fake helmet that is only going to sell for 20 Euro.
