Good morning Guys, the IJN stencil anchor helmet has always been one of my favorite lids and I don't think I've seen one on this forum so I thought I would start this thread.Here is mine so if you have em, let's see em. Thank you and thanks for looking.

Wow, I'm surprised that no one has posted their IJN Helmets? If I had one I would share it. All I have in a IJA lid.

We will have to give it a few days Sal, there aren't a lot of big collectors on this forum, so I started this thread to try to give it a kick in the a## to try to help get people interested 😉

The other day our sister forum locked my thread on original Japanese WWII ammo! So they sent me here, so here I am! I was with them for many years.

Not as nice as yours. Shame somebody painted over most of the anchor. But for $20 it is better than nothing.  Rich A. in Pa.

Damn Rich for twenty bucks I think you did pretty good, from your photos the liner looks to be in nice  shape and you might be able to remove the black paint from the anchor without damaging the yellow paint underneath but I would leave it as is.

One I used to own, Im not sure if the numbers are related to Japanese navy or not, it was painted black when I found it in a shop and the black paint come off easily but someone in the past scrubbed off alot of the original brown paint.

Hi. I'm guessing that the black painted helmet with anchor and the one with the red and white stripes are different helmets!  While most people continue to debate whether the Japanese painted their helmets colors other than "dead grass", or "shipboard gray", it appears that your helmet shows a navy painted example that was covered over in black paint; that's very cool!  I have also seen a white painted Japanese navy anchor helmet, a black painted Japanese navy anchor helmet, and a Japanese stencil anchor helmet, with aircraft green overpaint, among others.

If youre refering to the helmet I posted its just one helmet, it was painted a gloss black with red and yellow stripes when I bought it and the paint chipped away easily to reveal a brown painted helmet with yellow painted anchor, but before it was painted black someone tried to scrub off the original Japanese brown paint.

Yep, I was referring to that very same helmet; thank you for the clarification.
