    no, this is a Swiss helmet. It was sold to ARGENTINA as army surplus around 1970 or 1971. The Swiss re-designed their helmets in 1971 ; to replace the MODEL 1916 HELMET (your helmet is circa 1916)

    The Danes used a different helmet. The M46 was a variant of the Swedish M37.

    Later the Danes used the M48, a US M1 clone.

    Cheers,

    I think you are talking about the Danish M23 helmet
    It is not quite the same, but they look similar from a distance.
