    Looks like another variant of this one, which would make it a private purchase for use on the home front.

    It looks like the small 9-rivet variant but with a standard liner....are there nine pins/rivets around the shell albeit now possibly redundant?....and does the central hole look like a later add-on please?

    Default

    Yes there are 9 rivets around the outside of the helmet and the liner fixing looks like just a stud

    here's one of mine...probably the most distorted one AND with original liner held in place by the 9 rivets/pins (exterior has been repainted I suspect)
