    Default Estonian helmet???

    Hello all,

    This helmet was found in Estonia. Although Germans and Russians fought there, i don't recognize it as a German or Russian helmet. I did some research and I think it is an M40 Estonian helmet, but i'm not sure. I hope someone can identify this helmet. It has some battledamage on top. If more pictures are required let me know!

    Thanks in advance.

    Ok, here some new pictures. I took pictures from the side, the front and from the inside. Inside there's only one 'hook' (or whatever it's called) remaining. Another small thing (see pic) was found inside the helmet, and I believe it was once part of the helmet. I hope these pictures are good enough to identify the helmet.

    It looks like it yes, but i'm not sure. It still looks like an M40 to me. And it was found in Estonia after all..
