    Default Kuban Shields for review...

    Guys,

    Trying to help out a friend. He has 4 shields for review. 2 Kubans, a Krim and a Demjansk. I will post the Krim and Demjansk separately.

    For ease, I will post both Kubans together..

    So....could I please have your views? (I'm researching myself right after I write this....)

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Michael

    Hi Michael, I would not be happy with either of these as they appear to be "aged" in exactly the same manner. The staining is almost identical, and the beak on the bottom Adler is very poorly struck. Leon.

    My thouths exactly Leon. When I first got the pics I thought they were duplicated.

    My friend is sending me better photos soon.....I'll post them when I get them

    And in all deference to our excellent moderators, this is why I posted them together

    Looking at these again at a reasonable time instead of 0300, I'm certain that these are both fake, and here's another known clunker to compare them with.
