My guess, completely uninformed except that I’ve owned both, is that it is not French, but maybe Italian.

My guess is that it is French.  It has the 4-piece construction and the little slots rather than holes on the front to attach insignia. My limited understanding is that this was how the French helmets were made.  But I must add that as the saying goes, I'm no expert.  Just based on the research I did many years ago trying to ID my own Adrian.

french made Adrian m 15 steel helmet for french army, due to presence of holes for  front insigna and blue horizon colour.

Italians had in the first time of war Adrian helmets produced in France but without holes for insigna and grigioverde-graygreen colour. French army Adrian WWI are easy to find, italians less
