    I doubt he's a GHW member. His auction says don't bid if you're an online helmet forum member.

    It's on the eBay listing for this helmet here: ORIGINAL WW2 GERMAN M42 EF66 DARK GREEN BRUSHED CAMO HELMET W/T LINER | eBay

    Here is what is written on the listing:

    "If you are a member of an online helmet discussion forum please refrain from bidding on this auction as I have recently found that these chat rooms are full of extremely pessimistic people who almost always have the opinion that any camo being sold on eBay is not the real deal. These members are all anonymous and so you never even know who is giving their opinion whether or not it is a 16 yr old boy in his parent's basement pretending to be an expert or a seasoned professional. These forums are also chalked full of online helmet dealers who themselves have websites whereby they make their living selling at high retail prices and so anyone selling on eBay at a much lower price is a real and direct threat to their businesses. These dealers are greedy and want to control the german helmet market by creating a climate of fear by always insisting that every camo helmet being sold on eBay must be a fake or post war reproduction and that real original helmets can only be found on one of their websites. This is of course complete nonsense as their are variety of ways to find original german helmets as I myself am able to do on a monthly basis such as through online estate sales, euro based eBay sites, online searches of newspaper ads, local gun shows etc. Picking helmets and other german collectibles is just a hobby of mine and has nothing to do with my main business which is in home renovations. If I find a helmet for $300 and sell it here on eBay for $450 that is a great profit margin in my eyes and I'm happy with that even if the helmet is worth more and a dealer would have held out for nothing less than $750. I've been selling on eBay under multiple usernames since 1999 and feel I have a good understanding of this market place which is based on buyers expecting big savings and great deals otherwise they would just buy their items in a physical store. This is why I only ever care about what I paid for a helmet and not what some dealer would ask."


    PS: He does have a few good points, although in some areas they come across a bit snarky.

    Sounds like more of a Bi**h session. I agree with Chris. Sell helmets and spare us the speech.
