    Im half convinced this is a Norwegian repaint with a black post war paint and a local liner and chin strap, or possibly a liner made up in the form of an original, it would help greatly if you could make out any makers marks, and like Doug there does appear to be something odd about the vent

    Will get better shots of the vent holes and the maker-mark on the aluminum liner band, there is one in the area where you'd expect to find it on a German helmet.

    Some last detail shots- vent holes left and right plus liner band stamp- pretty age worn, I honestly can't make it out.

    Looks like NS flat vents.

    What is a "NS" flat vent? Sorry still new to this.

    "NS" was the makers code for Vereinigte Deutsche Nickelwerk. While each German helmet might look the same to the untrained eye, in fact each maker has subtle traits which makes them different from other makers. In this case, the air vents look a little flatter than other makers.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I'm far from being an expert but i'd say its a post war repaint with a Czecoslavakian liner and chinstrap re-issued for there civil and or defense forces.
