    Default Japanese Helmet

    Hi friends,

    I just received my first Japanese helmet and I would like to get some opinions on it. Is it 100% original or are there any red flags on this one?

    It appears that there was some sort of marking or stamp which was painted over.

    A very interesting helmet! Unfortunately I do not know enough to help you. Thanks for sharing!

    Looks to be in very nice condition type 90 lid. The paint seems to be still flat and not shiny from a lot of handling. Does look like the straps are not full length but not a big deal. Are the liner pads still in the helmet?

    Thanks for feedback Charlie, the pads are still there but no markings.

    Looks fine to me as well. Paints in great shape as is the liner too. No clue to what was painted over, though.

    Looks like a very nice mid~late war example.

    Here is mine - IJA Type 90 Helmet

    I have a few questions/requests :

    - Are there any liner pads inside the liner flaps?

    - If possible, can you show us the helmet without the flash (all around shot) ?

    - Any other markings on the rim ?

    Thank you and regards,
    Taka

    Thank you all for feedback.

    Jareth, there are traces of a stamp on the reverse of one of the liner pads, but its hardly visible.

    Taka-san, The pads are there, but no markings on the rim. I will make photos later tonight.

    Anyone who knows where to get an original camo net? and what would be a fair price?

    Cheers, Mads
