A priceless Peruvian headdress of the "utmost historical importance" that was stolen and trafficked to Britain was recovered by Scotland Yard agents. The 1,300 year old headdress was seized after an international art smuggler was tricked into depositing it at a solicitor's office in a sting operation. The famous headdress was later returned to Peru and is now on display inside a specially created safe room at the Museo de la Nacion in Lima.
