    Default German helmet or Argentine M16 helmet?

    This helmet appeared in Argentina. I know that the Argentine army adopted this helmet for a short period of time after the end of the first war in which it did not participate.
    Is it a real M16 helmet? or is it a replica?
    I particularly don't like the edge very much, it seems untidy.
    What do you think?
    I only have these photos at the moment

    Regards

    Are there any maker/size stamps on the apron? The would be over the wearer's left ear. Jim G.

    It's not an M16. If anything it is an M18 given there are no chin strap lugs.

    Are there any maker stampings on the helmet or steel lot numbers on the inside dome?

    Photos are lacking but from what I can see, based on these photos it does appear to be a period M18 shell.

    I will move this thread to the Imperial Section. It doesn't belong in the WW2 section.
