    Thanks, internet is were I started. But some times other coutry's give different (more ) information.
    I am well aware about fakes, when you do militaria I guess that you get used to it.
    The scrimshaw I got is indeed whale bone that was engraved and colored, only need to know if the signature is authentique.
