I took a few pics of some nice headgear!

Wanted to buy a few but sales were so bad I didn't!

Condition very nice! As a kid my neighbors father brought 2 home and stuff and we played war with it!

Kept in wagon in garage! Grenade belt etc! Those were the days! cry

Come to think of it the insignia was cloth and sewen! Felt like straw inside of those 2!

Saw nice Tanker helmet!

Pith helmet looks original to me except metal star was added & liner band looks like helmet chinstrap material which is wrong. It should have a bevo star

hi paul
sorry been busy with odds and ends never got a chance to answer the japanese pith helmet that was at the jag show where the guy was asking 500.00 for a molested japanese pith helmet wow . jareths opinion on any japanese head gear at all he is very well respected in this hobby on japanese items . at first i thought my eyes was deceiving me after so much experence in this hobby with german/japanese items my problem is when i feel and know that an item has been molested or replaced parts i call it fake and thats the end of the story . this is something every collector and dealer has to be on the look out for especially when items like this is made in korea/china/etc stay well friends best andy militarynut

Yes yours does have that look for sure! Navy helmet! OHHHH
that would be nice to see!

Real ones are becoming oh so hard to find!

The real Japanese headgear has been way under priced
and stuff hard to find!


Thanks for taking the time to share!
