    Default Krim Shield okay?

    Hi WRF friends! Looking at another Krim shield. I'm "pretty sure" this is okay, but wanted to see if it gets an all original stamp from the forum first. Price seems high on it though, at $380 for the shield and document. I was thinking more around $325 for the pair if they're good, but I was hoping to get a good value range if you all don't mind since I may be way off?

    Thanks in advance kind folks!

    Hi Scott,

    The shield is an original type 3.12 (1.27 in Weber's book) by an unknown maker. Document is a known type but whether it's genuine is for others to say, I don't know. Same goes for the price for the two but I saw the same shield (below) although more worn sell for just under $140 last month.

    Thanks Ned. Much appreciated sir.

    The pricing is the hard part on this one. The seller started astronomically high, and has gradually come down to $380. I suspect they have more attachment to it in their mind than the value justifies, which will make a deal at a fair price difficult, especially if they paid more than the value currently is. Still, it's quite a nice shield, and worth a shot I imagine!

    Have a great night/day!
