You are bidding on an AMAZING example of a WW2 Imperial Japanese Army ELECTRICALLY HEATED Winter Flight Helmet! This was used by various Japanese Pilots and Crew Members during High Altitude Missions or Open Cockpits.
Made of a rich dark brown leather and rabbit fur, this helmet is EASILY the best one I have ever seen…and is in EXCELLENT unused condition! It is constructed of multiple separate pieces of brown leather,with a prominent 2-dimensional 5 pointed Japanese Army Star sewn to the front. The ear cups are complete, and made of hardened leather, each having 30mm holes in the center for mounted the communication equipment/receivers. All straps are fully functional, and all the buckles and tabs work perfectly. Some slight wear, but no damage, rips, or tears! Very similar to the standard winter flight helmet, this type extended lower to protect the back of the neck, and front of the cheeks/chin. The SUPERB feature is that this is the ELECTRICALLY HEATED variant, which I have actually never seen before…and still retains original electrical connector at the back!
One of the RAREST and HARDEST TO FIND Flight Helmet, it would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection or display!!

——————- 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.
