An unususal aspect of this helmet is its three-piece two-buckle chinstrap, very like, incredibly, that used on the Spanish M42-79 see here

"There are no stamps, moulding, or any other identfication marks in this helmet. In fact there is nothing to show from whence it came or where it is used. So far nothing like it has been found, except for an Indonesian-used composite with some similarity but not identical. It has some characteristics in common with well-known SK export helmets, so has been placed here for want of any better ideas."
