  1. Update. The eBay seller sent me these photos. I believe that he is saying that this is the helmet he was selling and somehow the photo of my helmet was inserted into his listing. looks like a cheap copy to me.

  3. I just wanted to make everybody aware in case the buyer was on the forum or someone knew the buyer. I reported the listing to eBay. I also contacted the seller personally.
  4. I think m1a2u2 brought up some good points worth discussion. He shouldn’t be belittled for expressing his thoughts. I am not saying the helmet is real or fake. I am saying that it helps others to discuss why a particular helmet is authentic or not. Especially ARVN helmets which are faked so much.
  5. I am not sure what is going on here but if someone paid $175 thinking they are getting my helmet they are mistaken.
  6. Another member was browsing eBay and found my ARVN Ranger helmet listed for sale. Here is the link. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vietnam-War-South-Vietmam-Army-Ranger-Colorful-hand-Painted-steel-Pot-Helmet-/233790340072?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292 this helmet is still in my collection and easily identifiable as it’s probably the only one in existence (other than a copy someone else made that can be easily distinguished). If you see it for sale again it is likely a scam. I do not intend to sell this helmet anytime soon
  7. Seeing it set with the other more "bland" helmets, it is easy to imagine who got picked first for unhappy duty. It is also easy to see who had the least artistic talent ; )
  8. It would be nice to see a photo of a similar helmet in use.
  9. I never said there was anything wrong with the yellow helmet. I just found it interesting that they painted the panther so much bigger on the yellow helmet.
  10. The cat is way bigger compared to the others.
  11. Do you still have the photos?
  12. ID’d Marine lid. That explains the sale price. Nice find
