Classic fake... a couple of dollars worth of original relic shell, fake round bottom decal applied and sanded down to almost nothing. Sorry... but, pee eww!
Yes a definate fake i'm afraid , unfortunately relic fakes are now becoming the fastest way to make a buck, that said do remember that the majority of genuine SS Relic lids also some from Eastern europe and Russia so take each one on it's merits.
Where is this seller located ?

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
House Carles at the Battle of Hastings
The 'halo' around the decal where the shell was prepped prior to the decal being applied is a massive red flag for me.
Thanks everyone, I'll avoid it like the plague. Also, this seller is in the Czech Republic. Thanks again, Cheers!
