    Default Was offered a postcard collection the last day.

    My gut feeling says they're not genuine helped along by information read on here.

    I took a few samples and thought I'd ask the more knowledgeable

    Various colours don't inspire confidence although each one is numbered differently and i think there are around 30-40

    Still not feeling it though. In fact. I actually think I saw (in another picture) a guy I had seen before having me think it was maybe a reenactment group.

    Any input anyone? Or have I got it wrong?

    Not a paper collector but I think I see some foxing and age on some. If not real, these photos would fool me.

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Foxing is when the acid in old paper starts to brown , often seen in old books .

    They look good to me. They sure as hell aren't reenactment guys.
    It all depends on the price.
