    GasmasksUK,
    it is an M18 with ear cut out, is the shell marked ? usually on the inside of the side skirt, a correct M18 'cut out' MUST bear the mark ' ET64' as the Eisenhutten werk plant at Thale was the ONLY company to recieve the contract to make this style. Approx 100,000 were only made in shell size 64.These helmets are heavily faked, IMO yours appears to be such a copy,(or could be an original m18 cut to resemble a 'cut out model) the bill/peak appears a little too long and the cut out section appears to be severe, an original has a much 'gentler' curved appearence, only my personal thoughts, however it appears well aged.
