I haven't post here in a while, but still on the hunt and this one on eBay gave me a chuckle. Since the seller is clearly stating "Not a Repro"! And only posting a few very small pictures, I figured I better counter that statement with a post here and try to warn any potential bidders or new collectors that I think most will disagree with his assessment.
The seller states in his one line description;
This is an original WW II medic's helmet. I purchased it from an antique shop in England while visiting six years ago. Not a repro!
So, not sure if this is a case of the owner being taken and is now going to find out the bad news or is knowingly trying to sell a fake as real? Either way, it's a classic aged reproduction, display item. Buyers beware.
If anyone thinks I'm wrong, please explain, I'm all ears.
