    The liner band is not a steel band which is what we should see. The liner is not original as well.

    Bit of a mystery this one. Definitely not an Imperial German helmet or liner. Potentially something Austrian, and reminds me of the helmets (size 66 only) made by Gebruder Bohler & Co., Kapfenberg (Austria, Stiria), and used for other purposes post WW1.

    Any other stamps in the helmet? In stamp in the dome?
