Shouldn't this Front have Golden Arches in the middle ?........   http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Dennis-MA-Cape-Cod-Fire-Dept-Helmet-Cairns-Sanitary-W-Liner/391841721699

 Chief, I don't know for sure, but I think "The Golden Arches" is a feature that greatly increases the value of this helmet.

 I heard a similar case happened recently on ebay. A woman bought what was supposed to be "Moon Dust" taken from Man's First Step on the Moon. I think she paid about $9,000 for it. In order to find out if it was real or not, she sent it to NASA where they confirmed it ACTUALLY WAS "Moon Dust" collected from the First Moon walk.

 NASA told her it can't be returned. She took her case to court and won. She is now offering That REAL MOON DUST on ebay for $3 to $4 MILLION DOLLARS. (TRUE STORY). I heard that on CBS News Radio 88, just the other day. But then again - "Maybe it is FAKE NEWS" ??????

 But if that helmet was ever to come with "The Golden Arches", I wonder what it's value would be on ebay. Maybe even MORE than that Moon Dust.

I'm sure some of the guys here are also familiar with former Fire Patrol member Eddie Pops. He grew up in the Bronx near 75/33 and as I understand it became a buff of that firehouse.

 He went on the Fire Patrol and played a huge role in helping to locate the missing firefighters at the 23rd Street Collapse back in the 1960s (1966 - I think). That collapse killed 12 members of the FDNY, and up until that September Day in 2001, it was the largest loss of life to the members of the FDNY operating at a single incident.

 As I remember it, Hartford, Ct was giving a test. I think it was when the Hartford Firefighters had gone from a 56 hour work week to a 42 hour work week. The amount of fire activity in that city was just starting to pick up. In order to fill those positions, the City of Hartford opened up the test to people living outside the city.

 Eddie Pops was one of the successful candidates and began his career. He retired as Captain of Hartford's only Rescue Co (called Tac 1) with a very good reputation among the members. As well as being recognized for going above and beyond. He was also featured as one of the firefighters in the book called: "Firefighters" by Dennis Smith.

 I don't really know him personally, but I believe he is now the Fire Chief of a Volunteer Fire Dept in Vermont. He has made visits back to Connecticut, accepting some "used" apparatus to be used in his town because they just couldn't afford to buy their own.
