    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...525291275&rd=1

    Notice he says this is a personal picture of the previous owner at WTC, but why is the helmet blue in the picture and the ones up for bid is orange?

    I think the best part about the whole thing is that there have been 5 bids, and it's only at $12.54. Personally, I might get in on this, I need a helmet like that for my SAR stuff, and that's the cheapest I've seen them yet! Just clean all of that BS off the sides, and we're good to go...

    (Just kidding about supporting this moron, btw)

    Using a free firehouse.com email address, you can sign up for an ebay account w/ out a credit card (which is required for other fake email addresses like yahoo, etc).

    You can bid it up to the reserve, then never check your email.

    He pays an outrageous end of auction fee, you pay nothing, he gets stuck w/ no money at all. HA HA HA.

    Just a friendly word of caution...the FH Webteam posted during the last "helmet incident" that anyone caught doing so would be permanently banned from Firehouse.com.

    Based on blue's own personal, nightmarish experience with ebay, I would have to agree with you. At least I would hope that is the case!

    Did anyone email ebay and express concern. It seems that worked the last time and they made the person remove it. I do not condone making money off the misfortunes of our fallen brothers and the others that passed that day.

    Default yeah

    I reported it to ebay last sunday. It didn't get removed but the bidding ended without it hitting the reserve. I guess it never sold. It will probably reappear in the future.

    Default Lost 9/11 Prybar Found On Ebay

    November 27, 2005 -- A firefighting tool that disappeared from a Bronx firetruck at Ground Zero on Sept. 11 has been returned after an eagle-eyed captain spotted the device for sale on eBay. Capt. Joe Principio of Ladder Co. 58 on East Tremont Avenue saw the prying bar, called a Halligan tool, being auctioned in May — and quickly notified fire marshals. "I recognized it immediately," said Principio. "We had spot-welded '58' on the forked portion."
    The marshals contacted the seller, a volunteer firefighter in Florida who had posted three photos of the bar and wanted a minimum bid of $1,000, but the seller knew nothing about how the tool had vanished. The seller also volunteered to return it after he heard what had happened. "The guy was cooperative," said Principio. "He ended up sending it back at his expense."
    Nicknamed the "universal key" for its ability to punch through or pry open almost any kind of barrier, the Halligan tool — designed by ex-First Deputy Fire Commissioner Hugh Halligan in the 1940s — is perhaps the most common device used in rescue and firefighting. It costs about $100. Every firehouse in the city has at least one. Ladder 58's Halligan tool disappeared Sept. 11 from the side of its truck after the company responded to the World Trade Center attack. "Our rig was stripped," said Principio. "Most of our equipment was gone."
