i totally agree on it being a cut down m34 you can see where the top comb would have been fixed to the shell ,i wonder if any countries adopted this style post war to be there airborne helmet the conversion looks to good to be a d,i,y conversion ,the only comparison i know of on cut down helmets is the czechoslovakian m40/42 which was a cut down version of the stahlhelm m40 or 42 ,so to recap is this a one off ,or one of many or just a complete fantasy helmet who knows ,james
