    Ok! i see now! I guess it's an early ww2 civil helmet from the US, I couldn't recognise the liner though but the chinstrap matches other ones. Thanks!

    Australian made examples do not have the rolled lip around the rim.

    This is an Australian WW2 era made MKII.
    The first image shows the lack of a rolled edge.

    That's not American. I have an early Brodie style Civil Defense helmet and the liner looks nothing like that. I once seen one on e-bay but the seller didn't even know where it's from. It could be construction or a miners helmet, or a prop type used for movies?
