    Not sure on current worth as I bought mine a long time ago. I've never heard of them being illegal. They've been around a long time and quite a few collectors, including myself, have them on public display.

    I have one as well and I've never heard of it being illegal. I've heard multiple stories about how it came into existance, so perhaps someone here can shed some light. Something about smelting some sort of Valentines item into ingots. Oddly i've only seen the Helm and leggings and never any other piece of armor.

    The helm came from an NPC is what I remember. It may have been discolored on the NPC itself or in its stock. I want to say Buc's Den blacksmiths for some reason stands out related to it in my mind.

    Some of the items on the NPCs became discolored ... as I recall it was pre-trammel. This is where gold chessboards came from, purple legs of lamb, red torches, etc.

    Yes, it was the introduction of T2A which I thought was pre-trammel.
