Default very odd alloy WW1

He .
I got this the other day . It is made of alloy quite thick and weighs in at over 1.5 kg.
Is this some odd CAST repro.
or were these some odd production item ?????
I haven't got a bloody clue .
Your views will be great.
Regards Pete

Not a WW1 helmet I’ve ever seen. Post in that section for more opinions but I don’t think it served any time during a war for anyone. Prop? Yea or a bad fake.

It looks like the type of cast helmet seen on some of the remaining German WW1 monuments.
