WORLD WAR TWO JAPANESE TROPICAL SUN HELMET

$400.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 980-231

Helmet consists of woven bamboo covered with light olive drab water-resistant, cotton drill cloth. The covering is comprised of six machine sewn pieces, meeting at the apex of the crown and sewn under a reinforcing band along its brim. A ¾ inch wide band, with a keeper to its reverse, is horizontally sewn along the mid-point of the helmet. Above the band, to its forward seam line, is a brass five pointed star. This was added by someone at some point as the correct insignia should be a sewn yellow machine woven star. It may be a period replacement.

The interior has a medium green colored cloth liner that mirrors the six-piece construction of the exterior. Interior suspension is a thin strip of cloth passing through six cloth loops sewn to the liner. Strap is adjustable. Cloth chinstrap with two cloth keepers is also present. Both issue tags are present and bear Japanese letters.

Helmet has a decidedly used appearance. Both the exterior and interior surface have moderate surface dirt consistent with use. Underlying bamboo is in good condition.  [AD]
