    looks real the russian braid does not look like repo or east german also the cipher is very detailed repros usually look more crude

    That theory is very flawed: repros of these are very good indeed and require close inspection.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Agreed Ade, some of the fakes are very good. Need to have really detailed shots of top, side, and behind if possible, to stand a chance of authenticating the cypher

    The new GD Insignia books go into great detail about the metal cyphers, dedicating pages to them - 40 pages in fact. This is way outside my area of knowledge so won't comment on originality, I will leave that to those with far more knowledge on the subject but judging from the book it is, or is meant to be, a Type 1.

    Since I originally posted this I have been in contact with Scott Pritchett and have shared more with him and he is very happy with this, which was reassuring.

    Thankyou all for the input.
