    Did the USA use that sizing system Jake? Never seen anything like it before.

    This does not look US to me.
    I also think post-war.
    Will see what other say.

    Well it certainly has nothing to do with the US postwar Experimental Helmet Programs,and I too dont believe its of US origin and that shell is rimless so therefore does not have a front or rear seam which has never been known on any US issued Helmets.also the paint and texture is typical European so im going with chris on this one,cant add much more really.

    I'd say post war and maybe some kind of dispatch riders helmet.

    The US did and still does use this sizing system.....but as far as the helmet and what it is, I have no clue....Best guess would be a repro British Dispatch Riders helmet....

    An interesting helmet!

    Another clue is to look on the back of the stud button, might able to judge by the maker like United Carr, DOT, Scoville, etc...

    It's been over-painted in an 'army green'. Looks like something
    race car drivers in the 1950's wore.........

    The holes and the cord running outside the helmet reminds me of the vintage 'Texolex' helmets.
