    I still troll ebay from time to time, and will pick up a piece here and there. In the past, I bought more from the site, but found that I was returning as many (or more!) as I was keeping, and have since reduced my patronage. You really have to know what you are bidding on, or you WILL GET HURT. Just my 2 cents for what they are worth (which, if you listen to my wife, is not much at all - just kidding - please don't tell her I said that, she is great, and indulges my addiction to this hobby more than I could ever have expected!). Cheers, Jim G.

    Ebay isnt all that bad, overall it depends what you are looking to buy. For helmets its pretty much no good, theres fakes all over the site and all the relic lids are overpriced in my opinion. However many masks that were in my collection came of ebay, I even sold one of them for 30 times for what I paid for it, even at that price it was half its actual value (sold it to a friend and collegue so I gave him 50% off) also I didnt pay 1 for it it was into double figures, so the return was very good

    I think the moral is to know exactly what you are doing and not seeing ebay as the only place to get decent things, theres good stuff amongst the rubbish

    Thanks

    Thats EXACTLY what I was talking about! You paid less than 1 GBP for a gas mask! I'll bet the seller was less than pleased, since he actually lost money (on ebay fees, alone) selling it to you. If you sell something cheap ebay's selling fees, FVF, & paypal fees are always more than you got. I wonder what kind of fees those SOB's will come up with next? Maybe a facist fee if you sell Nazi stuff!

    I paid almost nothing for some of them, but the one I was reffering to I sold for 30 times more than what it cost me, the original price was over 10 but I'm not saying anymore

    Thanks

    I have found some really great deals on E-bay from time to time
    - a couple of German helmet shells too - but like what has been
    said already, you have to know your subject and it's value !

    Some of my best buys were items that were mis-identified
    or the photos were very poor.
    Regards,

    My comment was reserved for German helmets alone. I find that time can be better spent elsewhere and in study so you can pick up that interesting helmet with confidence.

    However a collector friend who does troll ebay found a nice named helmet which I did buy, a nice reissue lightly camoed helmet with my last name in it!
    I didn't know you were a WWII vet!?!?
