I hope someone can give me a link where I can find more information about this helmet. so to recognize this helmet, any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi and welcome to the forum, I think you have an M40 (possibly M35, hard to tell) HEER helmet ,not KRIEGSMARINE, that has had the vent holes "plugged". That was maybe done post war to turn the helmet into a bucket/flowerpot/cooking pot etc. As for the large fracture, it could be from a "pot shot" or down to frozen water expanding inside the shell rather than a missile strike.
