    The liner appears to be a WW2 US issue example.

    But the camo cover is post war US.

    The steel shell appears to be Belgian going by the decal.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Looks like Belgian to me.

    The cammo cover is 1960's.

    Please read the helmets section in the Western Allies forum: there is a HUGE amount of info about the US M1 helmet there.

    Cheers, Ade.

    hiya the camo cover is dated 1970 so late Vietnam era as Ade said the liner looks to be WW2 US & also agreed with Ade about the shells from those pics they both look to be what we call Euro clones.
