    From your pic...the flag looks like the old fantasy piece from the 1970s'. I had one, think a lot of us did. It's missing the rope, well mine had one anyway. I actually kept mine for about 30 years before selling for $15 a few Max shows ago.

    Armband...no clue

    Thanks real steel. You could be correct.

    This was the one I was comparing it too.

    Somebody got fooled I guess to pay 600 for one. They do look pretty cool even if not real.

    A 1970's Delta fake, the auction bidder is a fool, note the 30$ starting bid.

    The Bidder, hopefully can get his $600 returned unless he is some "Hermit" collector who will cherish is it in the privacy of his home for the rest of his days.

    Fool's and their money are soon parted.
    If they are buying this he/she must not be a well informed collector.
    A non-forum member, and possible Hermit, seems about right.
