As the others have said, its a reproduction, late Showa period, potentially even later. The quality of the "Menpo" is significantly worse and not even close to the real thing.

I won't be at all positive about this item. It is ugly and crude. The only - ahhh - positive issue I can raise is about it terrible  condition. I wonder if it might not be a bit older than others have suggested. How, I ask, could a Showa-era piece get so uniformly and deeply covered with surface rust?

Peter, here we find a ww1 or 2 helmet from time to time.   I can tell you, despite their age  they look at least kamakura ;-)
