Hi Jay, very nice and well done.
Note the RF "Reichsfabrik" number.
it's a bit faded but yes you can just make it out
Sorry to say but I think the eagle is a fake. It's been added later anyway so not such a big deal.
the source where I got this from is pretty rock solid so any more input apart from 'it's fake and added later anyway' would be appreciated.
Maybe comment when the item is first up for discussion rather than wait for it to be purchased to pounce?
Or is that no fun?
Carry on with that attitude Jay and see where it will get you.
I'm not here. actualy none of us are here, to vet every single purchase made by collectors just because they post some photos and demand an opinion to cover their own arse.
Miffed? you better believe that I'm miffed too my friend because you've had advice by the bucket load already without so much as a thank you.
When I've had good advice I always say thank you I think you'll find!
Check all of my posts and tell me when I've been so rude as not to as thank someone for their input? I'm waiting???
Never, you'll find.
The majority of people on this part of the forum are 100 times more ignorant than I have ever been in my life, thank you very much.
I never demanded an opinion, only a question, but because it wasn't a post about their latest $10,000 purchase from one of the 'gods' no one could be bothered to answer.
You have offended me by saying that I haven't been grateful because I have been very, very grateful for constructive comments that people have made to me.
I have only been collecting for a year and would not be where I am now if it wasn't for decent people on this forum guiding me so I don't know where you get your 'no so much as a thank you' idea from?
