New member here. I need some help with a helmet identification please. I saw this one at a "junk" store this weekend. The tag said of course that it's a WW II German Army Helmet. I usually collect U.S. stuff, so I'm not as knowledgeable on German items. That being said, I did see a couple of things that made me question the tag. What's up with the bracket/metal piece on the front of the helmet? Two rivets on each side? Is this a post war helmet or a German-type helmet from another country?
Attached below are some photos I took with my phone:
What do you all think? There wasn't any stickers or remains of any stickers on the right side. I didn't think to check the inside for any stamping unfortunately, but hopefully some here can tell me exactly what this helmet is.
Thanks in advance.
