This Adrian helmet is for Polish troops that were supplied by the French and wore French uniforms. Nothing to do with the German or Russian armies.

This pattern helmet is quite rare and there are fakes. The badge on this one looks to match the color of the helmet, but if it is loose, that is not a good sign. There's a chance that this could be a good one, but one would have to hold it in his hands to be sure.
