    Check out this book, some of the pages are digitized in link below and you can see various Russian models:

    Although looking around in I didn't see anything that matches up in the photos provided. I think it's definitely not German, neither a 'Stahlhelm' (sp?) nor is it a paratrooper's helmet.

    Germans had allied troops fighting on the eastern front; I wonder if it may come from a German ally, if it is not Russian.

    By sheer probability, though, it's very likely to be a Russian relic.
