I recently found on a local advertising in Belgium thise very nice , 17e Lancers cap at 1300€!
That helmet being very high on my list I reacted immediatly.
I got a first response within a few hours telling me lots of blalbla's
About him being a Englishmen from Manchester who worked or works (not clear!) in Brussels wanting to sell thise helmet, wich he owned for years!
The ad and his messages are in a aristocratic French with syntax faults, so to me he uses a bad on line translator!
So my first question was why would a Englishmen want to sell a top helmet on a local auction site in Belgium instead of selling it in the UK where prices would go higher!???
He said that sending the helmet would be at his cost and more blalbla...
But when I asked for more detailed pic's and that i would only have it personaly picked up in brussels or Manchester, messages stopped...
Did I missed a good deal (lol!!!!)?
Funny thing was that thise guy's message popped up in the middel of a bunch of WRF messages refearing to responses on" thread you have subscribed to..." dealing about ....Pawel Nowak.
That defenetly was a omen to me!
