The Magic of eBay – Sorry Enrico!

May 26, 2010

See this exchange between the eBay seller of the Italian paratrooper helmet below and a potential vulture who wanted to get her to shut down the auction.  Oh by the way she didn't and it sold for an amazing $15,100!!!

Q: hallo, have you buy it now price for this helmet? thanks,enrico
A: Hello Enrico, I am so sorry but I will let it go all the way through the auction. But thank you so much for your interest. Ivey

Now read what this other potential buyer had to say about people like Enrico:

Q: Hello... this helmet might be very rare... and worth thousands. please let the auction run... and don't let some scumbag dealer ask you to end early with a low ball offer. nobody will offer you more than an item is worth to end early. this looks a lot like Mussollini's helmet??
A: Yes, the auction will run and I have had some very good offers. Someone else has suggested that it may be related to Mussolini. Thank you, Ivey

All of the items in this post were sold in the German subcategory of WWII on eBay.  Not all share the pedigree that the #1 item does (which by the way was in my Hot Finds email!) but they are very nice regardless.  For example, the #2 item was a a flawless Zeiss binocular that went for over $9k.
