To me it looks like the typical round bottom fake which has been aged. The lid itself look like an original with original colour. Looks like its been waxed to try and blend the decal into the surface from here as well. I would steer clear from this one.
Actually looking at it again after I posted I think it might be a repaint of an original shell, then waxed or lacquered. Do you have a shot of the liner by any chance?
I will make picture of the liner this afternoon
Not a good one.
Yup, bad. Check out the reference section on SS decals.
Hi,this one is a bad "round bottom". Also note the uneven "level" to the runes at the base!! Sorry but no good. Leon.
