#1  good old authentic 16th 17th C  HINENO-ZUNARI  style kabuto.  don't know a whole lot about it - bought at estate auction here in the Midwest back in the 80's.  Silk thread has deteriorated so neckguards are loose but complete- heavy 8 lbs.  this is a real samurai head gear - either died from the sword or bow/arrow or a broken neck !  According to booklet by Louis & Kei Chappelear " The Evolution of the Samurai Helmet"  old Ieyasu Tokugawa in his youth wore this type kabuto BUT his was a brilliant golden color.   asking 850$  

 #2 32 plate  helmet believed to be early-mid Edo period.  Again the neckguards are loose as the silk threads have deteriorated.  This helmet is also fairly heavy just under 7 lbs.  Has the mons on the fukigaeshi.  Most all lacquer is gone and light overall oxidation but definitely can be restored or leave it as I have for over 30 yrs.  This is what happens when a metal item sits in a Midwest barn with NO humidity control.  asking $850

#3  or  $1550 for both  !  probably list them on ebay
