    the latest pigeon scam. Jeez , I can't believe some guys have the guts to ask money for these. Ebay will remove your genuine helmet if it shows a bit of the birdy, but will let these thugs sell their junk. he's asking 50 € for this "rare" German helmet........................................................
    If you have more similar examples , you can post them in this thread. (No repros, as we already have threads fro those) .

    Beware of this rogue he is selling fakes too .

    so rare there is almost nothing there to see.......a fool and his money...I'm not surprised, people will sell anything and everything--scams included...was it here or AHF that someone was selling a non-Luftwaffe item that had a Luftwaffe emblem??

    Yes, that would be a scam, but this guy will say it's original and can't be kicked out for selling fakes.... One would better hurry, in two years it will be 100% dust .

    I'll buy it if it's signed - preferably in felt-tipped pen - with a name like 'J Peiper' or 'M. Wittmann'...... :spin:
