    Default High Seas Fleet by Friedrich Orth. Real or Fake?

    Picked this up this morning from a second hand shop locally. The owner didn,t know what it was, and i only parted with 50 quid which i can take back if it,s wrong. Checks out dimension wise and weight, but would like the experts opinions. Merry Christmas to you all as well.

    Sorry Mark,i agree with John. Most notable signs are the pitting on the reverse & the "fantasy" catch. Stewy S

    Hello Mark,
    Sorry I can't help with I/D of your badge, I've been sold a number of fakes over the last ten years and am still learning how to distinguish them from the real thing. This forum has been a great help to me, there are many experts who can help.
    Anyway it's a good reason to wish you a good Christmas and new year. I'm from Pompey myself, so good to find a Pomponian on the site!
    Best wishes to you and family,
    Happy Christmas,
    navyman.

    Forums are great indeed for helpful information, however the knowledge manifested here comes from others devoting years of researching publications in print...arm yourself with knowledge, then buy.
