its good but starting to come apart.
Sorry gents, but I'll have to disagree. A known fake unfortunately.
For me, the upright hinge block is too far away from the edge and is not the correct profile, the maker mark is too crude and the soldering is very sloppy. Also, that circular outline at the top of the frame would be my first red flag. What is that smooth patch on the beading at the lower end of the 3 O'clock cross arm? It doesn't look like natural wear or damage and I don't know of any BHM variant with such a flaw as a feature.
Not for me at all. I hope you din't get "turned over" on this one
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing he cares more about than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature with no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
Thanks to you all...
Good reference site, thanks Woolgar..!!
