|Dallas County/Lone Star Auctioneers|
|Opening bid on these babies is $5 ... for the whole lot.|
'Round the office we spent the last little while debating what we could do with 75 M17AZ
gas masks, which Dallas County put up for auction this morning
. Fetish club apparel? Food critic disguise? HYDRA
Halloween costumes? Right now they're goin' for cheap: $5 opening bid for the whole lot, but that's with two full weeks left to go. I called 'round to some of the local Army Navy stores, and word is the classic mask -- originally issued by the Army in the late 1950s and updated shortly after -- goes for around $40, $50 apiece in good condition. So, something to keep an eye on, even if they're not intended for use by civilians
. Like that'll stop you.
