    It could be an Italian produced Adrian style helmet, with a twenties metal badge.

    A better pic of the emblem could help

    Yes, I had one a whle back, black or dark blue wth a stenclled white eagle & swastika on the front, I got shot of it because the general consensus amongst collectors was that these are'nt Luftschutze or French Milce but fakes.
    I'm by no means any kind of expert on 3R, but that's the way it looked, so I got rid of it at cost prce.

    Some were stenciled, mine has a 100% right as rain luftschutz decal on the front. Check the Baer book for decent pictures of original examples. Jim G.

    I saw one at a show and I think near the end of the war as bombs were comming , they needed more air raid men so its easy to use the french helmet instead of making new ones
