    Hello Dave. I have been watching that one. Seller "found" it years ago. (Have a look at his other stuff too.) No provenance with it either but there is a laundry number. To me not worth a fraction of that price. I have my doubts about the authenticity of the paint too.
    A fool and his money.........

    Ive also been watching the series of helmets posted on ebay by this seller, In my opinion these items arent worth that much, its people with way too much money to spend going crazy because all they do is sit on ebay and try to win items that you rarely see originals of (on ebay) so they go off the deep end. Majority of us who go out to flea markets, estate sales, etc are sometimes lucky enough to find items similar that we get for $75(Thats the price I picked up a MINT netted front seam SB with MINT Firestone liner for). Im not knocking ebay because I also buy from their its just CLOSET COLLECTORS! - Nick K

    Agreed. This hobby can become an addiction, and some people need to get to rehab.

    I don't think there is someone that stupid out there. It's ebay 'grey bidding' scheme. Seller asks relatives and friends to bid on his items so hopefully someone from the side would fall into that scam. It's all over the ebay. Usually the person from side loses that auction because of hight bidding, support group keeps pushing the price to the sky. And then he/she is being offered a second chance.

I think I have a pair of old socks around here somewhere...someone told me they once belonged to an Army Medic...if the buyer is nice, I'll let them go for a grand...
