WW2 Japanese Army Type 90 Combat Helmet
A khaki colored molybdenum steel helmet issued to a Japanese Imperial Army soldier during WWII. To the front side of the shell, a steel star insignia is affixed, indicating it belonged to the Army. Inside of the shell, a leather liner and cotton chinstraps are present. The liner is firmly attached to the shell and the chinstrap is in full length. It’s worn but complete and undamaged. There are some spots of superficial rust on the outside of the shell, but the leather part is intact. The helmet is dated “1943.”
It’s a very nice solid textbook example. Large-sized. A scarce one-look 100% original example!!
