    Default Warnings in classifieds section?

    I dont write this to question any seller at all, just a general wonder, in the classifieds sales section there is many beautiful items, and i would buy most of it if i had the money to do so. But if something fake would turn up there is there a common thing that you who knows the differences would comment on that item, or is it just ignored? I obviously got a lot to learn in this world of collecting, and id like to think that scammers would not put anything up on a place like this, but i dont really know thats why im asking. I find it very pleasant that prices are not overkill like on other sites, i bought a nice armband for half the price (maybe it would be triple as much) as i would find on ebay or similar.

    Dear friend i agree with you and i personally would comment and tell the seller it is fake because i would give him the benefit of the doubt and say maybe he didnt know it was a fake i would never assume he was trying to pull one over on me just my 2 cents

    I would suggest that you either post it for discussion in the appropriate area if you are unsure, or notify any moderator if you are sure and it will be looked into.

    I agree with Ralph. If you see an item that you feel is questionable or know is bad post a discussion thread and advise the moderator of the sales forum. Also if you are considering an item and don't feel comfortable about post it up for discussion, maybe it is bad or maybe you will learn something new. I'm not advocating using the forum as a vetting or valuation service but as a learning tool instead.

    Any items that are considered bad or there is uncertainty about need to be brought up for discussion ASAP. This has happened before and the selling of fakes is not permitted here unless they are in the re enactors section and are clearly labelled as such.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Ralph is correct.

    I am concerned re the SS sewing reel. These things are fake.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Good advice from Frank and Ralph as it is everyones responsibility to keep an eye on the classifieds as the members have more eyes than the Mods do. Too much junk gets by sometimes and not enough questions on it. If one wants to remain anonymous contact the Mod directly who is the over seer of that forum. Regards Larry
