    Not something I have collected before but I am almost certain Jap para helmets had a complete different setup to this one. Dont know what it is, Pricey though!

    I do not collect really Japonese stuff,but this does not look like the Japonese paratrooper helmets I know of.
    They usely go for 15000 to 17000.
    the helmet you are showing has the Japonese naval badge on the front if I am seing right.

    Good spotting, its does have the naval badge in the front. Its not a SNLF helmet which would hold that badge (not the same shape as mine) and it doesnt look like a type 90 so I would guess its a shipboard helmet or civil lid? Dont know

    I might have an Idea on what it is. Just looking at the pics on flebay and comparing to a Type 90, this helmet looks like its been cut down, to leave a slight flare at the front and nothing at the back. Only thing I can think of at this stage

    I was thinking the same thing.
    the guy is calling it a Navy paratrooper helmet.

    lol, great minds think alike hey! Looking at the added rear bails that make the chinstrap look conveniently like paratrooper "A" frame webbing makes me giggle.
