    Run away from it, nothing near an original! These fakes are currently flooding ebay.

    Compare with the one Steve posted here.

    Regards,

    This bears no resemblance to a genuine 1957 piece. The base metal is wrong, the finish is too bright and shiny and that pebbling is waaaay out!

    Compare to these......

    Horrid!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Daniel, as the lads have said, these are bad, and as Nick states they are all over E-Bay at the moment.....the price should be the first thing to arouse suspicion, if you are not quite sure about the details...........they sell from anything between 10 to 50 on a good day, you will not get change from 250 + for a genuine one.
    Adrian hit the nail on the head re the "pebbling" like fake wound badges they never match an original, plus the blingy finish and lathe induced lines across the centre disc....never seen on any genuine cross !
    Adrian, I never tire of seeing your KvK RK's, simply outstanding !.............just got to get me an "ohne" now......what are your thoughts re the Gold version in 57er form, I have only ever seen one, and that was in a photograph !
    Prost ! Steve.
