    Hey fellas.
    Just wondering if any experts here recommend any websites out there that specialize in type 90 helmet info?
    Also besides ebay, do any members know any reputable wb stores that carry these for sale? I mainly collect german helmets and all the stores i frequent dont carry them. Thanks in advance!

    Always be careful when buying militaria on eBay, but you normally find Japanese militaria coming straight out of japan and most is original.

    This site is good but a bit expensive The Collector's Guild

    or try this Wittmann Militaria - Japanese Section

    or if you don't mind shipping from the UK try this Regimentals

    Check out the helmet site, Walhalla.se
    Lots of great pics. of Japanese helmets, variations, etc., plus they have a For Sale/Wanted section and
    Japanese helmets pop up from time to time.

    Hey thanks guys for replying! I appreciate all the help.. I was offered $140 from a collector the other day for a shell with no liner but still retains a star and has most of the original paint. I do want to point out that there was no kanji that was marked inside the rim.... much of the paint is chipped and rusted inside the rim. Sorry no pics guys! I got to see it in person and didnt take photos. Oh by the way its not a civil defense or foreign reissue.

    from what i gather so far, that's a fair deal. Any thoughts? thanks in advance

    If it still had its original star i would say that was a reasonable price .
