    Default Help With Japanese and German Helmets

    Hi folks,

    I'm just starting out in the helmet collecting game, and would love some advise on a couple of helmets. Thank you very much in advance for any information you can give me.
    What is the Japanese helmet? I have NO idea.

    Hi Henrik,

    The Japanese helmet is a Civil Defense helmet of WW2 era.

    The German M16 has been maltreated. I can not make out the decal. The paint seems to be a later addition.

    Nice start for your collection! Have a look at this site. It gives you lots of info, even if you don't speak spanish. PORTADA

    Cheers,
    Emile
