A silent sentinel from the Pacific War, this helmet once shielded the head of a Japanese soldier during the tumultuous years of World War II.

The helmet’s timeworn steel bears the scars of battle, a testament to the intense fighting that raged across the theater. Its faded paint and surface rust speak of the harsh conditions endured by those who wore it, while the original three-pad liner remained in excellent condition amidst the chaos of war.

  • Type: Type 90, standard combat helmet for the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II.
  • Origin: Papua New Guinea, likely acquired during the Pacific War.
