I hope this is okay to post here, if not please admin delete. I think it should be seen! I'm new to ebay so am unsure if this is normal... but to me it seems to be trickery and sketchy.
WWII British South African Desert Rats RARE Camouflaged Helmet Afrika Korps | eBay
WWII British North African Desert Italian Theater Camouflaged Helmet 1940 RARE | eBay
I noticed this seller on ebay has been listing his helmets at a starting bid of $0.99 and saying "NO RESERVE" all over the description. However, he also goes on to say that a "added reserve" of $400 or more gets "added on to shipping."
So, your $0.99 bid becomes a $400.99 bid.
They are mostly mk2's, so thought to post it here.
Here's what the description says... kind of weird:
FOR SERIOUS BUYERS: OFFERING AN AUTHENTIC 100% ORIGINAL & DEEPLY RESEARCHED WWII HELMET.
No Returns or refunds accepted and will provide a tracking number for your parcel as insurance! Thank you very much
SHIPPING: $100.00 USD (RESERVE PRICE: $400.00 USD - ADDED ON SHIPPING PRICE)
PLACE YOUR BIDS "NO RESERVE PRICE!!!" "NO RESERVE PRICE!!!" "NO RESERVE PRICE!!!" "NO RESERVE PRICE!!!"
Can't comment on the actual authenticity of the lids, but just beware.
