I know Ebay feedback counts for little in reality but a look at his negative comments would be enough to put me off.

I'd seen it, I'd had no inclination to bid.
About 1/2 hr ago I was on the verge of contacting the seller to ask what the score was with a particular damaged helmet liner for a "Tommy helmet".
The same item has appeared for sale by this seller 3 times in quick succession
Is it an "aged" replica as currently produced in China and therefore being returned as fake?
Whatever, I decided I couldn't be bothered.
The warning signs were there, I don't know why I showed any interest - but yes, I looked at the negative feedback and that was that.......

Rather I fear itís a lot more. Iíve been keeping an eye on this seller since he came to notice in this thread.

Heís been listing a fake LRDG and CLC on short 3 day listings practically every week. This is at least the 5th or 6th Iíve seen. All have various combinations of fittings and holes knocked in them I suppose in an attempt to maintain the facade of realism should anyone notice he seems to have a plethora of these rare badges!
