Hello all,

I took a gamble on these because they were very inexpensive and they did have some spider webs on the inside of them (even though there are some old enough reproductions I thought it was a good sign. Can anyone tell me if these are just cast reproductions or if these are unfinished originals? They look like a WKC pattern to me.

I am not an expert but thanks for asking. IMO either these have been cleaned awfully hard or they are repos. I would go with the latter. Lots of casting flaws that I don't think would have gotten by the inspector folks. Better be real cheap.

The advantage of the later castings was that they needed less finishing. These are just awful and almost certainly repo's and bad ones at that.


War is when your government tells you who the enemy is.
Revolution is when you figure it out for yourself.
