My opinion is that is a fake helmet made starting from a Bulgarian M 51 helmet, that is very very similar to one Italian M 33. Other great doubts are that I have never seen or heard about Italian helmets used by Germans, and even interior and chinstrap of this helmet looks to me nothing of Italian production.
