Description
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing

A textbook version of the type 90 helmet, the exterior paint of the helmet is the classic Japanese khaki green. There is some scratching and rust bleed throughout and through areas of the scratching one can see the typical Japanese orange primer paint below.

The interior of the helmet has a good large size pigskin liner throughout, on lifting the front pad the date '15' can be seen, this is for '1939'. The chinstrap is present, however it has broken away from one side. Interestingly there are a set of Kanji initials embroidered into the webbing of the chinstraps. The rear chinstrap runner remains good and in place. There are two Kanji initials probably pertaining to the original owner as well as one which appears to be a unit marking. Interestingly the star the front has been period painted in a white or yellow colour, much rust bleed is coming through the original light coloured paint. Overall an excellent combat helmet. Code: 52942
