I could not find any other markings on the helmet. It does not appear to have been repainted and has light rust all over.

Could this be a WW1 helmet?

Yes, and Afghanistan bought a large number as surplus just after WW I and used them for their army for ages. The recent escapades over there have turned up all manner of ancient tanks, planes, guns and equipment, some of which has migrated west.
