WW2 JAPANESE ‘HOME SERVICE’ HELMET

£450.00

Description

Sold on behest of a veteran’s family.

Not a subject that I know to much about so excuse the description.

This is I ‘believe’ a type 90 service helmet as used by Japanese home front services. This is denoted by the white exterior painted band.

Helmet is in very good, little used condition with only storage ‘wear’.

Paint finish is 70% plus present with surface rusting present due to adverse storage. Interior is in excellent condition with liner very clean. One liner fitting rivet absent. Dent to crown of the shell.

Interior rim with period Japanese text which sadly I cannot translate.
