    Hi, I am certain that this example does not actually have blood on it. I realise it certainly looks dark enought to be blood. But the reason I think it is not, is that a large cashe of these and "Kreta" cuff titles (all original) came to light in Poland in the early 1990's. They were found tied in bundles. The ones that were in the top and bottom of the cashe were all badly stained and rodent damaged. But the ones in the middle were almost perfect condition.

    My "Kreta" is fairly rough and exhibits the same kind of staining and damage as your cuff title. I have shown it on the forum I think. But here is again. See what I mean?

    I have seen photos of the cashe but I never saved them. Maybe someone here has a pic?

    Cheers, Ade.

    It is still a good item in my book. Originality is what matters

    I haven't a clue on current values sorry!

    I think my Kreta was £12 back then.

    Cheers, Ade.
