This is an original WW II Japanese officer sun helmet. It is not a Japanese issue helmet though. When the Japanese army overran the British territories they captured stocks of British equipment. The Japanese decided to use whatever they could, and this helmet was one of those items. The maker label in the crown of the helmet is printed in English. The only conversion was the addition of the star on the front of the helmet which represents the army.
