    I think this one was advertised as a Polish badge on the side, the metal holder on the front might be for a riot shield/face protector that attached to the front. Probably used in Ireland???

    I thought it might be from Ireland but i looked at the visor for one of those and they are connected to the sides so it might of been mounted to the wall but it is a MKIII right?

    A WW2 Mk3, made from 43-45. Liner might be WW2 also, or dated anywhere from late 40's to early 50's.

    well if it has no bids on tomorrow i might go for it
    And have you considered the fact that the area on the front could be for mounting on the wall
