    I think it looks ok , is there any other ink stamps on the liner ?

    All I have are these pictures. I thought that the liner was supposed to be leather.
    I really don't know for sure. Maybe they also used cloth.

    This is a Japanese Type 90 Civil Defense Helmet and not a type 90 IJA helmet. If you are looking for a civil helmet then it looks fine IMO.

    Thank you Adam M.
    I was really looking for a military helmet.
    How can I tell the difference?
    They all look the same to me.

    They look quite similar, but the liner is a dead giveaway. This should help you, Request Rejected

    Nice link Adam!

    Anton: Besides the liner, the Civil helmets (and there are a number of variations I think) have a more pronounced flare on the rim all the way around. I will have to check mine out but I think the steel is thinner as well (but could be wrong on this)
