    Thanks guys. That was my thought. The bird doesn't even have feet!

    Hello

    This one is referred to as the "Melting Fake" due to it's obverse appearance. These can be found on several of the well known dealers sites being sold as real.

    Fortunately, this one is pretty easy to make out as a fake...unlike some of the others around.

    Best Regards, fischer

    Hello there,

    Agree a reproduction and an easy well to compare the originals to this one is looking at the jaggedness of the fake, very angular finishing and not smoothed out and rounded edges like on the original ShuCo that has been posted for a general comparison.
