My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

Hi, for what it's worth I am one of the majority of serious doubters when it comes to the round bottom DRK decal. I have personally never come across a period image of one or a top end collector prepared to give them an unequivocal thumbs up. However, Franks DRK on offer is a beauty! Leon.

I'll chip in I have always considered these fakes and the ones I have seen over the years were no doubter fakes.
The ones currently for sale by the forum sponsor Espenlaub are in my opinion also bad.
So buyer beware.
Now the big but ! I saw 1 once on GHW that interested me to have a hands on and I think the tool that should give us a chance to tell right from wrong is the USB microscope.
To sum up over all these years I saw 1 maybe and tons of round bottom fakes. Bad score so it will be interesting to read how they got into Ken's book. Hopefully not another champagne rune like ruse de guerre.
