    It is a real Japanese helmet, but I think it is a restoration. New paint, replaced liner and chinstrap. The liner and chin strap could be period but new to the helmet.

    I think the possibilty of a "reworked" reproduction could be considered too.Certainly a newer paint job,though.The draw string for the liner and even the condition of the liner itself are a bit obvious.

    the shell looks in very good condition ,does it have a jap size symbol stamped under the rear peak similar to the painted symbol ? the chin strap looks reproduction and also the liner looks to good to be true but hey you never know , nice helmet all the same james
