    your helmet is a WWI British made shell [missing the liner]

    FKS is a British maker and it also has the split rivets for the chin strap loops thats another clue it's of British origin.

    it's worth around $30 as is without a liner

    I just sold 4 like that for $25 each and they didnt sell very fast
