    Thats the only pics i have for now. I went out on a limb and bought it already. I was just looking for a rough idea so I know kind what to expect when I go pick it up. Thanks

    Sorry, but it is not original. Get a refund. Always seek advice on the forum before buying.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Welcome to the forum, JDIGGITY1 !


    Sadly, the verdict is in..................

    It is interesting that some of the faked badges and insignia are placed incorrectly
    to 'fill out' the look of the jacket, and how the belt is suspended by a tunic button !



    I too, hope you did not pay much, and can get a quick refund.

    Thanks guys i really do appreciate all of your help on this stuff. I can't get a refund ...but the way I look at it is " It's going to be one HELLUVA conversation piece with my friends when they see it.... I will how ever supply them lots of alcohol (hoping they don't remember) before I fess up on both the price and authenticity. My wife on the other hand has sworn to secrecy on this unless I say otherwise she said " We have blown more money than that and have absolutely nothing to show for it, no biggie live and learn" MAN DO I LOVE MY WIFE! BTW I am not telling you guys how much I paid you would die laughing! Thanks again! Jdiggity1 AKA "The Bad Lieutenant"
