Suspicious Auction Fw: [sca_merchants] Anybody Missing Their Armor?
- This was on another SCA list, and the 'seller' of this eBay auction says they 'got it at an estate sale' and obviously doesn't know much about it. But it is clearly a re-enactor's armor - there is padding clearly visible inside the helm [you can see it in the front on picture of the helm]. Now, it may be that they got it from an estate sale (seeing as the seller is a long time eBay seller); but if you know anyone who has had their armor stolen, you may want them to look at this auction.
A SCAdian suit of armor as nice as this usually doesn't end up in an estate sale in my experience.
