Default M1 Helmet Identification: Did I Get a Fake?

Hello all! I bought this helmet with a liner, Mitchel pattern cover, and cover strap. It looks the part and that's really what matters to me in this particular helmet.

However, I noticed it was fixed and not swivel bale. One bale stands kore vertically than the others. Then when I removed the cover and liner, it looked like it had no rim at all. And, the chinstrap can not be fastened around the backside if the helmet. At this point, I am assuming I have a knockoff steel pot.

Did the US ever make fixed bales like this with short straps? Is this from another country's military? Did I get a commercially made lookalike?

Thanks for your time! Album linked below
