Para helmet/ebay uk/ 1,200£s start

Article about: What annoys me over this Para helmet is the fact it was up for sale a few days earlier, and it had attracted several good bids (for the seller). Then suddenly it was withdrawn, and then put

    Any takers?personally when someone in their description of a much faked helmet only says (old german para helmet)im imediatly suspicious.surely a person selling for such a big price 1,200 satrting bid, wants to reasure potential purchasers of how genuine it is ,and go into much detail about its compoents.interested to hear what the other guys think of the helmet and the short short description???EBAY /270563583420

    So we have what appears to,i repeat the word appears to be someone trying to pass off a fake as genuine for big money.another reason why i bought a para repro helmet for 35 £s and a cover and 2 decals and i am delighted with it.there are many people out there who dont have the exsperience and access to our site who would be taken in by fakes being passed as originals.in sayi ng the above i wouldnt totally write off the para helmet in question untill it was studied in the metal.PS THE PARA HELMET I BOUGHT WAS ONE OF THE SAND COLOURED ONES,THE LINER IS DONE AS EXSTENSIVELY AS THE ORIGIANL AND THE QUALITY OF THE LEATHER IS SUPERB .I REALLY LIKE THE Y STRAPS ALSO,ALSO IN A GOOD GRADE OF LEATHER AND THE INK STAMPING ON THE LINER.THE CLOTH COVER WITH THE RETAINING CLIPS ,FITS SUPERBLY,AND THE DOUBLE DECALS I HAVE PUT ON IT FINISH IT OFF NICELY.I BOUGHT IT AS A REPRO AND IT WILL REMAIN THAT .THE ONE TINY GRIPE IS I WOULD HAVE WISHED THE WORDING ON THE LINER TO BE LESS BLURRED.

    I like the Era of the Helmet, as marked on eBay, as being "1914-1945". 1914 German Paras, who would have thought that! lol.
