    Default Japanese Sun Helmet

    Another item of my expensive day yesterday. It was like Christmas morning except I had to pay for everything..Eitherway a very happy day.

    Really liking this pick up! Don't see them often.

    A really minty IJA Tropical Sun Helmet. A few small stains on the back but otherwise perfect.

    Weather was not good so pictures are a little washed out. Sorry.

    Can anyone help with the translation so I don't have to ask the wife? Looks like it is named also!

    Does anyone know the model #? I've seen it referenced as a model 90 but not sure if that is right?

    Any and all commnets welcomed!

    Michael

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    I can read that it was made in Showa Ju Hachi Nen(18th year of Showa) which is 1943.
