    Hi Robert, here is a useful tip regarding "Bevo" SS cuff tiles.

    Take note of the reverse edge. You will observe a row of grey/white dots which form the edge? They should appear like the pic I have shown. If not, the item will be a reproduction. Imagine them looking like this:

    ............

    But if they look more like this:

    .l.l.l.l.l.l.l

    it will be bad.

    In hand, you will also find the fakes are modern synthetic materials and not rayon. They will glow under a black light and if a burn test is done to a thread, it will not turn to ash, but will melt into a hard plastic ball.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Robert, the one I illustrated was for sale at around $2,400. That should give you a rough idea of values.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Robert,

    I saw this cuff title several weeks back when I received an email from Affiliated Auctions announcing their upcoming event. I looked at the online catalog and saw several bad cuff titles, but when I saw this one I did think it had a chance. The day of the auction I watch online and decided to bid a max amount and as it turned out, I end up wining the item. Also, let me back track and say that I called the auction company during the auction and asked about their return policy should I order an item that turns out to be a copy. I received the cuff title today and have already called and gotten a return authorization. But before I do I wanted to allow other to review this current fake against a know original. The copy is only pretty good when the images are bad and once in hand I knew that this one would be going back.

    There was a ton of really bad crap in this auction that went for big and I do mean big bucks! I'm just glad that I didn't bet the farm on anything else.


    Original pre-1945 Reinhard Heydrich cuff title vs modern copy.

    For all that view this graphic, all I ask is that you do not distribute without permission.

    Thanks.
    All the best,
    David
