    Looks more than good. I really love Japanese helmets since it seems they all have something that links them to their previous owners

    If you're ever looking to get rid of it i'll make you a more than good offer.

    Very nice helmet! I've just recently got another type 90 from the US. The person who sold it to me thought it was a two-tone cammo paint job. But to me it looks as though its been (years ago) subjected to fire, this may explain the complete lack of liner. Will get some pictures posted of it soon.

    Check the pocket pads in the helmet. I've found prayer cards and ammo leaflets in mine.

    Thought the one I got was a Swedish helmet when I first looked at it. Then saw the imprint of the missing star on the front. $5 !!! and I was out the door.
