We have a nice site here and we all try each day to make it thus.
I normally do not post this kind of ebay silliness, because I assume that most serious people avoid this kind of trap now.
Ebay had some things of merit at the start, but not in my experience recently.
The treasure lies in old, dormant collections, assembled in the U.S. or in Europe in the epoch when this stuff was plentiful and relatively cheap.

Saw the ebay visor today, and it is OVER $900! Wow! Fools rush in!
A "ultra" rare cap in California.... C.Mengele...it's always you ?
I wonder who the Mensa ( or co-conspirator ) is who bid 7 times on this abomination?
More proof that money can't buy brains--it went for:
NEC SOLI CEDIT
Donnerwetter. I tried to sound the tocsin, but others are free to make fools of themselves.
The boy on the burning deck thing or the bloody shirt thing do not really interest me.
Our goal here is to include real material and let people learn, and to help them actively, so long as they are civil.
There is a dearth of civility and also whether some have the needed intelligence to master the complexity is a central issue.
Happy hats and the person who bought this stinker will likely manifest some remorse after awhile.
This one is actually more cunning, if it is fake.....

Mr Mint stuck this one in the dung heap, too, I think.
All too droll.
Early SS caps were not standardized, of course. The standardization began in the course of 1934, as we have suggested about five hundred times and documented with rich evidence.
The maroon mayhem site also has a non RZM marked cap poking around at the moment.
I could tell if I had the thing in my mitts, but I don't and I also don't find this kind of inquiry very edifying.
The person who aspires to buy this material with the hope of authenticity is enjoined to do their own work, with our aid.
There is little reason voluntarily to go down the hole.
Yet another case of shill bidding methinks. Seventeen bids so far from a recent member of Mensa.
