your instincts are correct...it is not the real thing ! Repro IMO.
Hope this helps.
Well darn... that's one thumbs down, I guess I'll wait for a few more... ;-(

NEC SOLI CEDIT
That's my view of the thing.
We need some mechanism for the beginner with the clear, step-by-step practikum of how to get to the trove of the real caps.
I leave it to Dimas or Adrian to noodle it out, but it is a real problem here, since Mr. Mint has done such a huge service to dozens of people per week who come here
with the same question.
Also, the person who posts a dumb a$$ fake cap should then pay for the advice he or she gets here from the centuries of collected wisdom and the enormous expense in time
offered by some of us. Some of us spend a chunk of every waking hour organizing all of this, and it is not a public good.
I.e. you have question about a fake cap and you have no experience? ergo, go to place A. and look at real cap; then to place B, where you place your query, with no hectoring from the peanut gallery ; C. receive expert advice from world renowned expert; D. Pay .05% of value of cap to website; E.) endure cutting and hurtful comments from others about your query, with opt out function, F. decide whether to collect Nazi caps, Pez containers, or lunch boxes......
If, after twenty four hours, you are seized by Nazi caps again, repeat procedure, or seek twelve step program for spiritual uplift, to include painting and drawing classes in Italian renaissance. No swastikas allowed.
Needless to say, this procedure failed in my case.
This thread should come first, somehow, and then the dozens of debatable ones should come some other way, somehow....
I am not sure how to configure it, but the present arrangement is set up more for those of us in the know, which is not the majority.
