    The helmet is original and i like the cut off chin strap remains , it`s a pity the liner has gone . The star could be a replacement . the kanji on the rim denotes it to be a large size. Are you looking to purchase it ?

    Hey Al, thank you for the comments and info, much appreciated. I actually already own this. I bought a relic Type 90 off this guy who was trying to get rid of his collection due to age, the relic helmet was a cave recovery, once I purchased the first he asked if Id be interested in this one as well, so as a grouping I bought them both for about $300. Iv only been on the forum for under a year, and I actually was unaware of it until I stumbeled accross it, so before then I was trying every angle and book to research Items myself, which was good, but always helps having an extra opinion from someone with experience. So I was just checking this helmet out to see If someone like yourself had some info on it that may be benificial to me on originality. Never having dabbled in Japanese items before I was going in Blind when purchasing this helmet, just went off my research. But anyways I appreciate your help, and glad to hear I didn't do to bad, or get scammed

    Indeed, a good one. Star may be original too. Use a magnifying glass and look inside the rear of the helmet very carefully - you may find a manufacturers mark. NH
