    It's a German copy of the US Helmet Tank Crew, both fibre and aluminium versions exist. They were made in Germany for US Forces in Europe in the 1950s, but my examples appear to have been issued to either the Bundeswehr or the Dutch army.
    Yours is in beautiful condition, mine are a bit more used, This one, also made by Maury of Offenbach, is named to someone named Jongsma.Click image for larger version.
