looking for one of those funky looking little European rotary valved helicons with the little bells in Eb. Did they make them in Eb? I think the ones I have seen are in F.

Not funky, rotary, nor 'Euro', but Wessex has a pretty hip Eb helicon.https://www.wessex-tubas.com/shop/tubas/eb-tubas/he29-eb-helicon/

Dillon has a couple of Eb helicons right now. One is a Conn, not sure of the other. Pistons, I'm afraid. There is one dealer on Ebay who comes up with a lot of that Euro stuff with rotary valves. Can't remember his ID but guys here have talked about him and say he's a good seller. Maybe someone else knows his name. He's based in Germany.

UPDATE: His Ebay ID is g.mu6 and he has a few F helicons right now.

Just checking...

Some o' the suggestions are piston Ebs helicons.

Would the OP consider piston Eb options?

I would prefer one of the old style rotary helicons, mostly for the look. I play in a German band and would like to have that authentic look if I could find one that plays halfway decent.
I have an awesome Pan American BBb piston helicon already.

My friend has one he may part with. It a czek 3V 1900s style. I think he was wanting $800 or more. Its in pretty decent shape for its age and has the original mouthpiece too.

This looks like the answer to your question. The price is even right:

Not rotary or European, but I have one of those really cute BUESCHER E-flat helicons here with a nice bag on consignment. It's the same model that Tom Holtz acquired and souped up for his own use, but this one is not souped up.

Not the same guy unfortunately but I have emailed them a few times. Seems like a legit store.
