Japanese Type 98 Version 3 Sun Helmet

A very fragile new add to my collection is this Type 98 Sun Helmet. Designed to be worn over the Type 90 helmet these were manufactured from a variety of materials including woven straw bamboo and wooden slats. This one is the type 3 with no vents. The manufacture of these was discontinued in 1941.
