    Thank you, yes this example is very nice condition and I’m very happy with it. And yes there is some kanji on the back of the helmet, although it’s hard to read (both because it’s small but also because my Japanese isn’t good enough.

    Thank you for the reply History Brick.When you have time I would love to see a photo of the marking/markings perhaps one of the friends on the forum could translate for us as my abilities are limited.Are the markings stamped into the metal or painted?

    Regards,Geoff

    The kanji is painted on. I believe it to be a name and address, but the kanji is very faded, that is why my family member (who is from japan, I’m just half) can’t read it.
