    It's a Staegmeier fake. This is an early version that's been around for a decade. The fat, round wire catch gives it away as that was never used on originals, only flat wire. Since then he's improved it to make what is virtually a perfect fake that will be very hard to spot in a few short years.

    Regards, Ned.

    Ned stepped in while I was typing. Good call old mate. Must admit I wouldn't of known the "faker". Stewy

    Here's my genuine example for comparison. Note the difference in texture of the base material, another thing that the faker has now resolved.

    Good luck with the refund. In future try to post prospective purchases here first for verification, that way it will save a lot of tears and money.

    By the way, welcome to the forum.

    Regards, Ned.
