    Default Another M1 Para D-Bail

    I posted a link to this one on Dave's thread "Its all starting to look a bit too familiar." This one is interesting, and judging by the price so far, a lot of people feel this is real. It looks OK, but the thing is, there is no prominence with it.
    Opinions would be appreciated.

    Best Regards,

    Andy

    Im going to way out with my first guess.
    $6100 and 31 bids with five days to go! Unbelievable!
    I wonder if it will beat the last one at $14000 surely not.

    D bails were never brazed on. Besides that fact it is a damned sloppy job. A pisspoor fake if I have ever seen one.
    It appears regular fixed bails have been broken off with a d shape being brazed on. D bales can be purchased at many sites.
    It also appears there is some shill bidding going on
