    Hello Fenchy,

    This is indeed a Dutch helmet. A M34 to be exact. Most likely made during the war for Civil Defense or Police use.

    The liner certainly is correct, as is the long strap.

    Army helmets had an oval copper plate soldered on. Depicting the the coat of arms.

    Many army helmets had these plates removed and were sprayed black, but then you would be able to see the olive green in the inside bowl. The leather ring on which the liner flaps are sewed, would be marked with the letters CM and the year of acceptance.

    Civilian helmets were not so marked.

    Cheers,
    Emile
