Well, someone posts and shows a well known terrible fake and asks if it's real. Everyone says no, and answer more questions as to why, and several give details like I did. I noted the orog. nose is only outlined with no though hole. I gave aprox. length dimension per posters request in comparison to his fake. Bob H. gives a nice shot of the face of it, then poster complains he should be able to see the back side, we explain no, and why help fakers.
Then poster questions if I had more than one. Poster then challenges me to show I have more than one. I show three of them with a little humor and nice other real items, then poster complains they need to be all lined up, to he can judge if my three pictured Tux skull ribbon bars are "GENUINE"? It is amazing, a thread poster starts off NOT knowing a thing about these a things, but now he is a judge, as to what I post being authentic, after I spent a lot of time helping him, on top of that, he complains I didn't line them up.
Suggestion Odessa, print out the picture I posted, get some scissors, do a real old fashion cut and paste into what ever configuration you wish.
When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
As Bob stated before, if anyone wants to email either Bob or I, with a picture of one of these, we will be glad to give a yeh or nay.
No one was thinking any SB- ing was coming from me, with one exception, ie there was only one person doing any insinuations and or such questioning. I didn't say I had three, I showed three! One of which is on a tux they are designed for.....
Are you a mind reader? You must be to make a statement like that - that NOBODY thought you were bs-ing about having 2 or 3 of the pins. I KNOW how people think on this forum. They are highly skeptical of claims like you made. I was just acting like the Devil's Advocate. Obviously I made a mistake doing it this time.
