    Question Can someone identify this helmet and it's origin?

    I believe this is an Adrian helmet, although I cannot be entirely sure.
    I bought it in France a while back, for just 20 euros. The metal clasps that hold the liner are only 3 in number, as one has been snapped off, and the helmet itself has been repainted extensively. Coats of paint are in this order: Original blue, black, field green. The badge is an infantry one, I believe, but is not normal as it is on a shield.
    Can anyone elaborate on this? Thanks! An estimated value would be splendid, by the way.

    Even with the black pics it looks like a French Adrian but much better pics are needed.

    With the bomb badge on the front, it makes it a French Adrian helmet. Most likely WW2 use

    Welcome to the forum Pearce , as the others have said it is a French Adrian helmet of some description. A little tip I have learnt when in the English darkness is to turn on a light! Only joking!!! Leon.
