Here is one more Japanese helmet that has been in my collection for 20+ that I have not shown in a long while. Maybe generate some discussion here with any more recent findings over the last few years as many in the past have questioned these helmets with the painted stars.
A fully complete size large Type-90 helmet finished in green. Stamp marked produced by the Kobe Seiko firm with a large size interior liner and padding dated to 1940 (Showa 15 Nen).
This helmet has a white painted star at front that many in the past attributed to post war done for display purposes.
