    That's a great mask! It is a Type 1/ Model A gas mask, it is civilian. I heard the army started ti use this masks at the end of the war because of the lack of equipment.

    Good call! It is Model A Type 1 dated Showa 16 (1941). If it has two straps on top it's army compatible, one strap is civilian only. They were used by the army in all theaters of the war from about 1941 on as a lower cost alternative.
