There was one at Mason Dixon this year. I tried to buy it but it was sold allready. The original buyer backed out and it was offered to me again. After some careful consideration I decided it was "no good" It was being offered for 850.00 I almost got fooled. Just goes to show you,you need to be very careful. Ask lots of questions,and don't be afraid to ask fellow collectors. There is too much of this ***** starting to show up,and it is being faked too well.

That does look real. A much better fake than the argentina stuff.
It's getting hard to know what's real anymore. Especially for just the average guy.

appreciate all the input from everyone, kind of thought that, emailed the seller and he wasn't really friendly, when I mentioned it might be a reproduction
