    Unless that's some super rare variant that I have never seen, that's NOT a WWII M1.

    My guess would be Middle Eastern M1 clone?

    Beats me, I try to look if there's any info about it. It puzzles me though ...

    Most definitely not WW2, Joe may be right about it's origins being a middle eastern clone.

    I believe this is Israeli I've seen many with the same type of set up before might be quite old maybe 1960s

    It looks like a Korean/Chinese composite helmet. As for it's webbing, a guess would be the Pakistan region of the world?

    (Or, for fun, a 1917a1 leather webbing, and a 1'st patt Hawley nape strap!)

    [/SIZE]Have a look at my 20+ (so far, work in progress) albums for lots of M1's, rare liners and other stuff, including WW2British helmets, Falklands battlefield pickup helmets and let me know what you think!

    Many more and better photos would be vvery helpful but I can say for certain it's nothing I've ever seen US, clone or otherwise. The liner is more indicative of a soviet style, which I have never seen on any M-1 clone. Isralie helmets has standard US style liners so it's not that I'm sure.

    Possibly and M-1 that made it to Iraq and has been field modified?

    Interesting helmet, looking forward to the final conclusion.

    Regards,
