    It's not an American helmet I'm afraid. The stamping on the rim means it is a European clone shell, from Scandinavia I think, possibly Denmark. So it seems is the liner. Clones are not my best subject, but I am sure others will confirm the exact country of origin, but it is not America.
    Sorry.

    I'd need some better pictures to tell you where it's from. Check the top of the liner for a very faint light blue stamp "ABL", it's very easy to miss if you don't have the correct lighting, if it does, it's Belgian. I'd also like pictures of the inside of the helmet, and the outside of the liner.

    Thanks to everyone for your help!
    Now i know from where is my helmet, you're all awesome guys.
    I buyed it from a russian with acess to all the Urss armament and nazi things, so i think it's bulgarian.
    But i want to ask something more, do you think it is a good replic?

    Bulgarians never used M1 style helmets to my knowledge.

    It would be OK as a talking piece, an ornament if you like. It is not a replica in the true sense. It is not accurate in any way I can see, nor is it Bulgarian. More pictures of the liner would be good. I hope this, object, did not cost too much.

    Best Regards
