    It is a French M15, Serbian badged helmet as James said. Not easy to find, don't let the conditon put you off, to find one where the badge looks original to the helmet is very important.

    Here is a page from the "Illustrated War News" December 1916.
    The writing has come out a bit small. The helmets shown are Left to right top to bottom, Belgian Serbian Russian Roumanian.
    Apparently the Belgian Serbian and Russian are Khaki and the Roumanian is Blue.

    Some pictures of my Serbian Adrian are below.
    I sent you a PM.

    Value is very subjective, I find an'Advanced search' on ebay for sold listings a good indicator of what people actually pay, but of course you need to know your subject because there is some odd stuff on there.
    If you do one for this helmet two come up, one is actually Yugoslavian and advertised correctly as a repro which sold for $200 the other is Serbian (I'm not personally sure I like the paint) and has no liner and sold for $590.
