    Default M36 Bulgarian helmet being sold as a M1916 German helmet!

    Do my eyes deceive me or is this a M36 helmet? Would this even be a good price for a none refurbished M36?

    So would this even be a decent price for a M36 with an original liner? As I got a M36 with a cold war refurbished liner for 30.

    Agreed. Definitely not German.

    This helmet has been incorrectly ID'd by the seller from a lack
    of knowledge, and by not researching it thoroughly...........!

    I don't know the conversion rate, but I see all three types of M36, on Ebay, ranging from $25 to $50 (plus shipping) depending on how much of the Bulgarian flag remains on the lid, all the time. I don't think these M36's are too hard to come by for a decent price, I've got one on my "Need To Get" list.

    The ebay price is too high for one of these Bulgarian helmets, IMO.
    30 Pounds is about right I suppose, for a good clean original.

    So he really is ripping people off! And I just checked, I got mine for 24 plus 6 postage, so 30 with postage.

    Many sellers on ebay price their items too high - trolling or fishing for someone
    who doesn't know their stuff, or who are willing to pay huge prices
    for relatively common items...........

    I think that E-BAY ought to be held more accountable , re the sellers on their site, are they not governed by allowing false advertising to take place, they wont allow the swastika to be displayed or certain items of militaria but they will let fraudsters display obvious fakes and misrepresentation of items, this one is blatantly misrepresented and therefore they should demand that the description be accurately listed, give one warning and if not heeded ban them
