Another forgotten helmet recued from my basement.
What intrigues me are the leather liner pieces with the underlying brown or faded green canvas pads. The m-16 that i have posted has similar white pads. This helmet is rather primitive in terms of protection from concussion . The outer steel is solid and the leather chin strap looks good. Could this be an imperial japanese helmet from that period though clearly not german. How about italian? I just do not know. Any help would be most appreciated.
