    Default Kuban shild, Opinions needed.

    Hello, I really would like some opinions on this Kuban Shield.

    To me it looks like a type 5.5, right prongs, patina and certain features, but not all matching. I know these are heavily faked and pretty good fakes are out there, makes me a little uneasy!

    Thank you.
