    Martin The fakers have some of the real stamps they mark items that would not be marked or they put the wrong stamp on the wrong item. Here in the US a few years back we had a lot of post war bayonets Waffen stamped in the wrong spot. I don't have any examples but I bet others here do.

    Hi Martin, I understand. If you can get over to some of the bigger UK shows, such as Beltring I am sure you would have a fantastic time.

    Cheers, Ade.
