Found this liner recently. The webbing looks like it could be a 40-50s US liner but the extra leather chin strap (with some marking) and the overall shape do not match.

any idea what this thing is exactly?

 

thx

Going to say not US.

 

Looks like a movie prop to me, but I could be totally wrong.

Looks like some sort of Euro-clone. However it dosent really appear to be M-1 style, simply a slight resemblence. Someone will be along shortly who knows exactly what type or nationality used this.

Pretty sure this is some sort of 1960s Japanese or Chinese civil defense helmet. One site has this listed as a Chinese civil defense helmet from the 60s, but the webbing makes me lean more towards it being Japanese. Do you have a better picture of the writing on the chinstrap? It kind of looks like Kanji, but its hard to tell. Maybe someone on here will have better luck IDing it. Regardless, the helmet is 100% not US.
