Berndorfer Opinions

Post by ranger-cpt » Tue May 01, 2018 4:30 pm

Hello, I'm new to this board, but was wondering if there are any opinions on this Berndorfer. I read in a previous post that there were some suspicious Berndorfers coming out of Italy a while back, but in my opinion, this one looks legit. Any thoughts? Thanks

Thank you...good to hear someone with a concurring opinion. A righteous example of these should sell for higher than this, so maybe just an low sale?

The price was almost too good to be true, but then again treasures do slip through. I've seen stuff for sell for insanely high prices on eBay and others are practically given away. I know I found one of my favorite sun helmets on eBay and bought it for a few hundred dollars when it could have cost a few thousand.

I was tempted to bid on it but did not have the resources to buy it.
OK, they are dolls, but they have kung fu grip! and weapons.

I did some digging around and found that the same seller sold an almost identical Berndorfer Helmet in February for on $1300!

It's unusually to find that many berndorfers for sale and $1300 is a steal if real else it is junk
