Sold (mmc)Outstanding Japanese Type 90 Combat Helmet with Cover


It’s not often that we see this nice of a Japanese helmet and cover together. The covers are normally worn out and tattered, but this very well used example retains its color, shape and all markings. This is a veteran helmet with medium to heavy service use, but fully intact. It is dated in the 15th year of “Showa,” Emperor Hirohito’s reign, or 1941.  The name inside reads: “Todaki.” The surname could be “Toda” with the ‘ki’ ending meaning an honorific like ‘sir.’  It is also named on the outside, and the soldier used a small calligraphy brush to apply it, unmistakably an original trait. A remarkably cool, salty Japanese combat helmet from the bloody Pacific. COA accompanies.
