Not at the shops I had been to so most likely got to try private collections.
I got people willing to let go of their DP '97 Boba Fett Helmets but not yet for Biker Scout or other helmets. Wish I had gotten the other helmets too 9 years ago when they first came to Singapore or 4 years ago when I first gotten my IRG "cheaply" (Helmet was only USD45 but shipping was USD41 and I nearly didn't get it)

IMO retrospectively paying the shipping would have been a necessary cost to enable you to get the Don Post helmets that you wanted. I understand that now DP helmets have become sought after collector's items in eBay esp. the Royal Guard Helmet. Hence the prices would have soared compared to a few years back and in the in-between movie years.

About my IRG, not really. I was quoted USD30+ from Galaxy Trading ~5 years ago but they shut down due to Love Letter from LFL before I can afford the helmet (and armor). Of course, the headache of waiting for my helmet is another factor as the seller keep quoting being ill that eventually, I think a few weeks or months after I received my helmet, eBay removed him as a seller. He gotten the helmet very cheaply anyway as from one of those "Annual" SW Warehouse Sales (I saw the photos of the one selling the Don Post Helmets)
For my friend's Scout, it was Kropserkel's and untrimmed one. Standard price since a long time ago but there is the quality.
Of course, I shouldn't mention yet how much someone elses will cost them but I heard it'll be a lot more since going for more accurate ones, compared to Kropserkel or SC which are Fan Sculptured. I'll stick with Kropserkel or SC since I promised to get from them since last time.
