    Hi there, welcome to the forum. The whole package is Austrian, 1960's ish onwards. I can tell from the chinstrap buckle just visible on one of your photos.

    Well, the liner is comfy, if you're willing to butcher a nice 1960's helmet to change the chinstrap for a wartime repro, you could pull it off. A repaint/retexture would be needed too.

    Not guaranteed. Post shots of the shell. Check the rim for any stampings, and the frontal dome for any number/letters. If the dome has a HEAT stamp (Number/letter combo) it's probably of American origin.

    Not very likely I'm afraid. I suggest reading this thread: http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/us-m1-...c-shell-22931/

    It's still a nice helmet, and I suppose could be used for reenactment (your goal I presume).
