    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    The list could go on......but these are the more popular sellers which sell period Original photos.
    Good to see that most of the sellers I've dealt with are actually placed on the "Good" list. Maybe creating a pinned thread to be regularly updated with info from this thread could be an idea? That way we would avoid seeing the two seller lists disappearing in the midst of this thread.

    Here's the one I have seen tolzor1 selling at least two copies of... the back has a fresh-looking piece of black cardboard, covering approx. 70%, glued onto it, as if torn out of an album... paper is not marked and quite thick, I've yet to do the UV light thing. Upon scanning I found that the image is surprisingly lacking in detail, no real depth or detail.

    Aha! I didnt even notice that Ade! Thanks for the confirmation on this photo. I dont even want to know what it will sell for.....
    Well.....lunch time over....back to work for me



    P.S.- Slados thanks for posting.....will take a look later on, but if it were bought from "him", then it probably won't be a good outcome unfortunately. I think youre suspicions are most likley correct tho

    Well, Ive matched the paper to an example in my collection......but mine has a glossy finished obverse. It actually might have a chance.....but I tend to be sketched out for you because of the sellers reputation

    Bill, you were right about that first photo being the first of many! Unfortunately, after Styx discovering a few of his to be fake, I decided to check back to this guide, and red flags are showing for some of my recent purchases. I'm not sure if I'm just paranoid, or rightly concerned, but I feel like I notice traits you listed as bad signs in some of them. Could you please let me know your thoughts, and what aspects show them as bad? An example of one of my concerns: the edge cut and quality of the photo of four men in a row, but then I'm not sure.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for doing the compare! This one has a plain, not glossy, obverse.... hmmm, I'll scan the back and post tomorrow. I'll also be getting myself a UV light
