Stay clear of this one. It's a very good copy of an original by arch faker Carsten Staegemeir. The main giveaway is the flattened mudguard as i've highlighted below. Other giveaways are the classic grainy Staegemeir finish, and the weight, which at around 25g is nearly double that of an original.
'I do not think we can hope for any better thing now.
We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.
Last Entry - For God's sake look after our people.'
In memory of Capt. Robert Falcon Scott, Edward Wilson, Henry Bowers, Lawrence Oates and Edgar Evans. South Pole Expedition, 30th March 1912.
