Ok, so basically, I took a quick look and didn't see anything for this, but I suck at searching so point me the right way if there's something on this.

One of my friend's finally received his copy of the game (the CE) yesterday and installed and registered it today. While inputting his codes his Onion Helm code came back as an already registered code, everything else worked fine as far as I can tell, or at least he said it's only the onion helm code. I told him to contact Square about it but I bet he won't remember for another 2 weeks. I'm curious to know what the good folks here at zam have to say on this. Random freak duplicate code? mistyped the code? (note: I did ask him about the mistyping of the code and he assured me he didn't, though he gets frustrated way too easily and I'm inclined to take this answer with a grain of salt)

It certainly seems far MORE likely that he made a typo when entering the code than the possibility that a code was printed twice.

Of course the latter IS still possible and your advice about contacting SE is the right course of action.

Hopefully he listens to you since once he creates his character he can't get the item on that character (he'd have to delete it and recreate) and since the Onion Helm is basically the only thing you get for the CE, it'd be a real shame to lose it

Have him try to re-enter it, paying very careful attention to the 0s and Os, since they're very similar.

I stopped wearing mine after rank 7 or 8 and haven't put it back on. Feather duster condom heads look funny.
