    Welcome Vic S, you will enjoy it here and the members are a real friendly bunch, the level of expertise regarding items collected and shown is in my opinion second to none, and the moderators and admin staff are very experienced collectors, even after collecting for over 45yrs i have still learnt a great deal from the guys here and they will be able to advise you regarding items to be shown

    Here is an update with a pic of a new fake title being made in China. Sadly I only have this single pic so no reverse details are known to me.

    Cheers, Ade.
    This one seems to have the details you mentioned correctly. A and F not merging, triangle in the middle of A in good shape, oval centre of O and different shaped centres of R and P. I would have known it's a fake coz F seems weird and also all the letters seem to be more thick than originals. Unless it's the picture that makes it look this way. Oh and the brown color is light green on this one.

    I saw this cuff title today advertised as vintage, seller is looking for $250!

    It seems to tick all the boxes as far a fake goes.
    Seems to be selling a lot of other items on a fraudulent basis too
    Hi

    Yes, correct this one is a bad one.

    Hi Ade,

    Thanks for posting the newest generation of fake AKCT's. This one is a one looker fake for me...Letters look all wrong. Also guys remember the hole in the R & P can be the same size/shape on some originals. As Ade has mentioned the reverse weave on the letters is the key on most fakes. Look forwards to seeing the reverse of this newest example from China.

    cheers

    Finally i have found one in a reasonable price to purchase. Based on what Ade has said, it is original IMO.
    The green middle parts of the letters R & P are equal but Ade said: Now study the "R" and "P". See how the middle of each letter (the green part) is a different size? Most originals, but not all, will feature this size difference.
    So let me know if i am wrong.
