    You could use it as a fishing weight! Seriously, everything is wrong about this one. The eagle, wreath and rear hardware are a mile off compared to a real one. Here is an example of another confirmed fake, as you can see there is no difference.

    It would be the most expensive fishing weight I've ever bought! Is the mark on the eagle a real mark or is that just put there to deceive?
