Give it 20 more years the helmet pool will be so polluted with fakes no one will know whats happening.
If you bought this helmet you are an idiot.

I indeed forgot to mention the 17,5% buyer fee, not un-important..

Next to the helmet pics they provided what seem to be period pics with what looks like a similar camo set-up to the one on the helmet but I wonder why put an extra (phone) cable over the burlap and wire.

The auctioneer did not provide good close ups of the wire/burlap touching the helmet.

I don't think all this auction information really is trustworthy.
It is an algorythm controlled environment (like Facebook) , they can do whatever they want with the data.
They can do fake bids , fake sales just to pretend business is good. After all who visits an auction that never sells anything ?

I do not trust such business model.

To give you an example :

http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru....php?t=1010676

This RLB helmet was offered to me for around 350 euros, I passed. Then it was for sale at the Houten fair in Holland. After that I spotted it at a dealer website for about the same price.
Several months later someone told me it was sold at an auction for 1200 euros which is completely crazy. I saw the catalog it was in there but now it turns up here ?

There's a lof of BS going on with auction sites.

Agreed auction houses are not meant to take bids off the wall but they do like shill bidders on ebay. Rob

A substantial number of dodgy items were sold on this auction, high value items. Another reputation going down the drain. J

A seller on ebay has a similar aged one listed (as an original), the seller is tantiques53 and appears to be selling other questionable items .....Looks like a Latvian dealer operating out of SC,
United States. It's listing price is a lot lower but it already has 3 bidders.....
