Translation (courtesy of Google Translate):

 

hello I bought a helmet in a flea market but I do not know what this model is I think it is an M51 from the French army. On the helmet it is written "Renov EWT 142" the year is 1970 thank you for answering me

 

(Also, I moved this into Helmets so that it might get some thoughts!)

Everything I’m seeing points towards an early French M51, the slightly off shape, the weird bales, and the close-but-not-quite chinstrap.  
 

I recall the M51’s used a version of fixed bales for a time, but I could’ve sworn they were shaped differently, yours might’ve been replaced later on?
 

If it is, in fact, made in the 1970’s, there’s a number of design inconsistencies with the American helmets of the period, ignoring the fact M1 helmets weren’t dated (not positive if yours is, but guessing based on your post.). 
 

Still a nice helmet, but not one I believe to be US made.

 

 

More photos could confirm or deny, especially something like a side/front profile shot.

If this was found on eBay, it would be going for thousands of dollars and the title would be something along the lines of, "RARE EXPERIMENTAL PARATROOPER RANGER WWII HELMET"
