    Default Two Japanese Type 90 Helmets

    Hi Guys,

    I am getting ready for the Military swapmeet we will be having next weekend, so at the moment I have a heap of stuff out which I havent posted before, so here it goes

    These are my 2 type 90's that sit with my Type38 Arisaka. The first I aquired recently. Nice army issue,with original star. The part that drew me to this lid was the damage and the fact its come from inside out. There are some Japanese characters scratched into the paint on the back of the helmet as well, which I believe is a name (I wish I did Japanese at school now). No liner but you can see a shadow of one of the pads on the inside so I would assume it was taken out due to blood damage, pins are still there though. Some stamping in the back, S in a diamond and the size character.

    Helmet came out of the states as an estate sale but I cant guarantee that.

    Second lid I have had for years. Got it from a local dealer here. Its has an SNLF badge on the front, though I have been told its a reproduction. I do believe its the badge that should be on this lid though. Its in a semi relic state but the best thing on this one is the paint, which is a shipboard grey, that apparently doesn't come around all that often. There is still alot left on the lid which helps it along. Inside the chinstrap is a repo again but was on there when I bought it, again all pins are present though. There is some stampings to the rear but are different to the first, being an 'A' and some numbers.

    I was going to sell this one to find the first one but I just cant bring myself to move it along. Hope you enjoy

    Cheers
    Jason
