A real chickenwire paratrooper helmet is an easy $12,000 any day of the week to any of a dozen collectors with one phone call in less than one minute. Why would a militaria dealer put it on eBay instead? Less than 1 paratrooper helmet in every 1,000 listings on eBay is original. Look elsewhere.

Now at $225...reserve not met ....yet. 2nd generation Czech fake, 15+ years old. Description states it is in "very good condition", but no where did it state that it was an original or a fake. Also states "it has been used previously".

I bet it brings $2500 or so.

We have a WAF member who is from Canada and goes by "cpmil", so I will see how this plays out.

My first thought as well. I am sure that helmet was featured here on the WAF. J

Thanks Floyd, Willi and Jacques.

My mistake on this one. Yes definitely a Czech helmet but never viewed on WAF before. Came out of a huge estate that I am working on. My last piece listing late (for me) on Ebay before the weekend and missed putting listing under repro category. All bidders contacted and mistake pointed out. Several still showed interest even as a repro so debating on relisting or letting it run its course. Thanks again guys for the correction, Mark.

Mark, you never corrected your e-Bay listing pointing out that this helmet is a reproduction, even though you are aware of this with certainty for several days now.

Someone, will be paying $1000 or more for this crap - and you are just fine with that?

Of course you can revise. It just becomes an added comment. We are all concerned ....

Furthermore, told each bidder that if not satisfied in any way then I will issue a full refund with no questions asked as we do with all of our Ebay sales. Probably why I run at 99.9% to 100% feedback with over 30,000 transactions. Thanks, Mark.

No problem at all on this auction. I contacted the high bidder to see what his wishes were and we cancelled the auction. Again thanks for the help. Much appreciated. Mark.

What utter BS. Leaving it up to the bidder to be "satisfied" when they obviously don't know it is a fake, is an outright scam. You know it is a fake and you have not listed it as such. Who cares how many great comments you have, when most don't know what they are doing. What "his wishes are" is another BS comment. If he hasn't been told it is a fake, his "wishes" may be to buy it offline at a higher price.

Not to worry Wiili. All ended well. As previously stated all bidders were contacted well before the listing ended and all told that the helmet was a Czech repro. Again thanks for your input. Much appreciated, Mark.

Not sure if you took the time to read the whole thread. Ebay auction CANCELLED. Should I ask for forgiveness guys, repent and chuck in a few hail Mary's. LOL. Have a great weekend to all and again, thank you all for your input. Take care, Mark.
