Argentine Officers helmet

Post by J.LeBrasseur » Wed Nov 18, 2020 1:14 pm

Was lucky enough to just get this nice Argentine officers pickelhaube, appears to be German made and old.

Not my main interest, but a very cool helmet. May or may not keep it?

Very cool James! I love the Phrygian Revolutionary cap in the centre of the wappen, also worn by the French in their revolution.

I like it as well !!
The 5 pointed stars are something else.
