Description

You are bidding on a GOOD example of a WW2 Imperial Japanese Army Summer Flight Helmet!  This was used by various Japanese Pilots and Crew Members throughout WW2.

 

Made of a rich light brown leather, this helmet is in decent used condition!  It is constructed of 8 separate pieces of brown leather, however, the 5 pointed Japanese Army Star is missing from 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.  The data stamp (written in Kanji), is stamped into the earpiece and is clearly legible.  Some wear from use internally, as well as some slight tears/holes due to the age but otherwise VERY NICE!  Some corrosion to some of the steel fittings, and one snap is missing.  Would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection or display!!

——————- 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.
