    Greetings all, I tried to post pics of my modest collection a bit ago but my files were too large, so here are pics of a couple pieces I'm starting to think are fake. I picked them up at a gun show last weekend and just have a bad feeling about them now. All comments welcome while I resize my other pictures

    Sorry for the poor quality, I took the pics with my blackberry...

    I'm fairly certain that the cuff title is not authentic, the quality of the stitching is just very poor and doesnt match originals I've seen online.

    The mothers cross I'm still on the fence about. The R in Mutter is a little messed up, and the blue parts just seem more narrow than on others I've looked at.

    IMO the Mother's Cross is bad. As pointed out, the white enamel section is too broad. The "rays' at the back are also too short, which is common with the repros (view photo) The lettering is also not as crisp as it should be. Could you please post a rear view?

    Hi, sorry both the LAH cuff title and Mother's Cross are bad.

    Cheers, Ade.
