You are bidding on a STUNNING example of a WW2 Imperial Japanese Army Leather Cold Weather Face Mask! This was used by various Japanese Pilots and Crew Members throughout WW2.
The Cold Weather Face mask was generally used at high altitudes to protect facial parts against low temperatures while in flight.
Made of a light brown leather, silk, and fur, this Pilot’s Face Mask is in AMAZING condition! 100% complete, there are NO rips or tears! Some slight marks and wear due to the age, but nothing that detracts. Though the straps have lost most of their elasticity, it is still EASILY one of the nicest ones I have ever owned. Features a manufacture ink stamp, with a production date of 1944. I have shown one in use in the last photo. Would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection or display!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————–
Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. I will describe each auction to the best of my knowledge and take as many photos necessary to ensure you are pleased upon receiving your item. All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.
——————- ABOUT ME —————–
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
