I have just picked this up. Can You tell me if I made a good decision on purchasing this ? For me looks good enough. Any opinions are welcome.

Sorry, but it is a common Ebay reproduction that has been artificially aged.

Also looks too thick.

Dear Mr Craig Gottlieb!

Jet again, you produce a fake!
Why?

The same as your endless items from Schloss Klessheim!

Could you please do us a favor, at least be frank about your copies.

It don�t matter if YOUR experts says that it�s original, you paid them!

Sorry, but I could go on about your fake "Hitler collection"- maybe some other time.

Kind regards,
vonLind

I�m sorry to have mislead you.

I should have phrased me in a better way.

My somewhat harsh writing was ment as comment to Craig Gottlieb�s contribute to the dealers community.

I apologize if I have offended you in anyway.

Kind regards,
vonLind
