The badge is for a civil fire brigade. Not sure of the actual time period,
but it might even be post-war. It's complete but $195 plus postage
is rather alot, IMO.........
the pics aren't blurry for me but heres the link to the website. Bargainbasement
No, I see you've posted a close-up of the badge
which helped immensely.........!
If I were you I would look at the prices these go for on ebay. Japanese sellers don't charge anywhere near that. A fair price would be roughly half what they are asking. Such helmets are in abundant supply.
