Argentinian Combat Helmet, Falklands Bring Back.

A very nice Argentine combat helmet brought back from the Falklands conflict by a serving member of the British forces. The camouflage cover is a field made item as seen by the button hole to the top, its in good bright colours with some wear to the fabric, colour is stronger to the inside were its been hidden from the sun light. The shell appears to have good finish but i have not removed the cover from the helmet itself, its a rear seam American M1, the liner is an Argentine composite example, its in good all round condition with its leather sweat band and neck nape strap. The chinstrap is complete with both ends kept under the rubber band, ive not removed these as this is the way i found it. Found inside is a label which states the lid was found on Two Sisters in a trench. The goggles came with the helmet, there in good used condition and have an Argentine makers details to the front.
