Andy there are many threads there about it there but I quit that site in June and won't go back (other than the recent helmet I wanted to expose as fake on all forums) and there are one or two threads on GHW2 as well.
Scout, nothing surprises me about this hobby anymore.
When money is involved those of poor character and a low moral threshold will justify doing just about anything to screw their fellow man.
Not to Ftance ...
I didn't like it from the git go No Patina to suit me all Contrived and at that price these people are not helping the military collectible hobby. timothy
Poster child for military modellers paint, airbrush, fake camo/wire, rubber mallot bonked, classic eBay sucker bait. Steer clear, previous comments of doubt are well founded and expressed.
There are 1 of 2 scams at play here I think - Bidders are shill bidding to drive away other real bidders and then will refuse to pay the seller the winning bid, buying it cheap and reselling it OR the entire sale is a fraud showing a high final but fake sell price and then it hits the market to an unsuspecting buyer who will pay above the winning price and will be shown the ebay sale with 100% positive response and all the bidding to "prove" it was real.
Either way, I wouldn't worry Tim, a real camo wire won't be $10,000 on most good days, but it will be expensive.

I don't like this the helmet has no wear underneath were the wire is, I have seen this happen before people looking for german military on ebay just bid on the first thing they see real or not. There is a good chance that this is a real bid and who ever is bidding they are making a big mistake
