    I think you nailed it: It's a Japanese Civilian helmet. Even though the numbers are "western" - the Japanese typically kept using these numbers on items like helmets and NCO swords.
    Nothing wrong with what you got. Military examples command a much higher dollar - but you got a good deal for $20!!!
    Congrats!
