Original Imperial Japanese Army WWII Type 98 Sun Pith Helmet with Service Wear

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a good condition original service worn WWII Japanese Army type 98 tropical sun pith helmet. It still retains a wonderful form with internal bamboo wicker construction. Comes with original pentagonal brass army star insignia pin to the front. It does appear like there were additional insignia at one point. Helmet has part of the original suspension system and original chinstrap. Well marked original labels inside with kanji characters.

Condition is definitely worn, showing wear around the rim, with overall staining and dirt. These helmets were often soaked with water so that they would have a cooling effect. This is definitely not a helmet that was sitting on a shell during the war. The upper suspension string is present, as is the lower, along with the original chin strap.

An very nice complete WWII Japanese battle-worn jungle pith helmet for your WWII collection. Ready to display!
