NOT a paratrooper helmet.

My guess is civil defense or police.

it has air vents like the fireman's helmet, maybe it's a Swiss fireman's helmet?

No I'm not. I'm in tucson right now. Ebay used to show me everything, but it up and started giving me this message recently on some gun related stuff etc. I don't ever use ebay to so it doesn't really bother me much.

I think this is the helmet pictured. It also describes the black leather neck protector.

I was wrong - that sure looks to be the one. Nice work tvc184.

That's a German Fire Police helmet marked with Organisation Todt insignia. OT was a German labor organization that was in charge of building projects all over Germany and the Occupied Territories.
