    At the Very Least then, you should post Negative Feedback for the unscrupulous Seller who is currently enjoying spending your hard but honestly earned 200 that you'll never see again...

    If it were real, it would sell for an easy $25,000 - $35,000 with 1 phone call.
    Wow. How in the world did this hobby get like this? Unreal.

    Only 200? I wish I could afford to write off 200 just like that! If that was me I would be out for blood!

    How many mint wire Normandy camo SS helmets exist? The answer: None.
    So it's like any hobby. Supply. Demand. Condition. Provenance. Rarity.
    These add up to how the market sets a price in any collecting hobby.

    How much do you think a game worn hockey jersey to the player who scored the winning goal in the 72 Summit Series (Canada vs Russia) sold for? A few hundred thousand dollars, because there isn't another one. But you can buy a game worn jersey right now for $100.

    Not every helmet is worth that kind of money. But one-off rarities in any Militaria genre are worth a pile of money.

    You can buy a helmet for $100 if you want. But if you want what would arguably be the best helmet on the planet your going to have pay for it.

    Yeah I guess. I'm not griping, I'm just shocked. That helmet would be worth nearly a third of my house. I wish I had a dozen.

    If you had a dozen, they wouldn't be worth 35K each! Because you would have 12 of them available! lol

    True. And, since I'm too lazy to create multiple sales listings, I would only sell them as a set.

    I thing everyone of us has been burnt and it definatly makes you a better more careful buyer in the future. I have been done thats forsure and just about killed when a guy sold me a cheap ww1 grenade that turned out to be live . Police were watching him and he wanted it gone. I was pulling the pin, dropped it once but lucky for me the spring has seized up .

    That was a close call. I'm glad that spring was seized up. Did the police end up taking it to dispose of?
