    Hi Skavenger,

    This is a Swedish helmet. Probably a modernized M37. Look at this link. Complementaria casco sueco mē 37

    hey, thanks for your time! You are absolutely right it is a swedish helmet, the helmet in the link looks like a newer one compared to mine both in the shades of color and amount of pins on the helmet, mine has(6) and that one has (2). Anyways I have just found something that confirms that it is a swedish helmet, upon closer inspection I noticed yellow and blue sorta coloring on the sides of the helmet, they have been scraped off long ago but you can still make out that they were the swedish emblems at one point of their life. il post pictures

    upon even closer inspection, it appears it was black at some point and then repainted with the green color you see
