    Default Japanese type 90 helmet

    I picked this helmet up for very little money at flea market recently. I had some issues with the liner and the shell doesn't look the best. I believe it maybe a replacement liner, but I'm not entirely sure. I didn't see much rust at the pin points of the liner. I compared it my other type 90 helmet and see some differences with the liner but not the straps or shell. Any input would be helpful.

    Shell looks good but the liner just looks way too good. It just doesnt match up to the rustyness of the helmet shell. I could be wrong. Japanese helmets are not my cup of tea. Im pretty sure the Shell is good but I can judge for sure that the liner is fake.

    I kind of figured that with the liner, but I always like to double check. I only paid $30 for it and the sure the shell is worth more than that

    I wouldn't complaint at all for $30 !

    Just leave it as is. At least you can wear it or fool around with it, lol!

    You did good on this one.

    Cheers!

    By the way, here is my example:

    IJA Type 90 Helmet

    It also has the same repaint on the front.
