    Why? It is a bogus number only found on fakes.

    Hi Geoff, Brad is correct. These 380/40 marked deathsheads are bad. They hit the market in the 1980's and are attributed to being made by Herr Floch.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Brad and Ade and Phil are correct. The 380/40 is crap. (I'm sorry to say).

    hello Ade, thanks for pics. The reason I asked was because I came across this TK out there on the www and I am not familar with its style. I remember the 360/42 ? which is different to this one. just wondered that's all

    The proof is in research, and knowledge, you shouldn't question a member as knowledgeable as that.

    I should have given you a more thorough answer from the start. It is not as if my user name is recognized as carrying special weight on any particular subject, nor should it. You deserved a better answer than my curt reply to give you confidence that you are being given accurate information.

    As others have mentioned, I spend a bit more time studying these silly pieces of metal insignia than most and I can say with complete certainty that the 380 number is bogus, as are 360 and 373. Collectively, these numbers are sometimes called the 300-series fakes.

    I can elaborate further if you feel it necessary, but I believe that if you check the names of the others who responded within this thread to confirm what I said about the number, you will see that you have already received substantiation from several highly respected gentlemen in this field.

    Best,
    Brad
