    Jack Very nice, look's to me like a French Mle-51 Tank helmet, I cannot tell from the pictures provided but it should have a four point leather chinstrap fitted, perhaps the headphones are covering them up!


    Check out this excellent website for more info

    Opex thanks for the info, the shell from what I seen does look a lot like a m51 tank helmet after looking at that site but if you look at the pictures the chin strap is located at the end of the headset not in the helmet but yes I agree that its a French helmet, I know more once its in hand, btw I won this for $37 total that included shipping

    Opex is almost right in that it is French, but it isn't the version he cites. Have a look at the Mle 65 here .: World War Helmets - Casque Modèle 65 :. and scroll down to the section headed 'Version avec évents d'aération'. It seems to be a rather less common variant - can't say I had evere seen one before and it took me a bit of poking around to find it.
