Please forgive me if this is not US. Can anyone give me any info on this helmet? Like what era? I'm sorry for "out of whack" pictures. Thanks.

No "ifs" about it. Non-US modern helmet. Yugoslav? Chinese?

Yugoslavian.  Pretty common import piece.  Mostly advertised as from the Yugo Civil War.

Atb and Sully are correct. M59/85 Yugoslavian helmet. The M59 had a nape strap, and a skirt angle that was more parallel with the brim. The M59/85 model did away with the nape strap, and angled the skirt upward more, from what I understand. Prices range from $10-$20.
