    that would make it around April 1943 giving the possibility that this was originally a fixed bail shell ?

    Ive just noticed that i seems to have dimples on the rim where the bails are which means this was indeed originally fixed bail

    I think it could be a helmet used in the pacific because the inside looks like it was dipped into salt water a lot almost like if somebody was scooping water up with the helmet and pouring it on their head like to cool the person down.
    ...maybe. just a thought.
