These pair of EGS's are lost-wax castings not die struck originals. The makers never bothered to clean up the casting flaws. The pieces look like melted wax which they were before casting in metal. You can see the flaws in this enlarged section.

it's about to be moved back, and then merged with the EGA repro thread when the auction ends

 

It was moved to the EGA forum to generate more conversation, being EGA's

 

And those close-ups really help see the slag detailing on the edges. They don't seem too bad from afar and blurry, makes me wonder if it was intentional, though judging by his other auctions he's not a dealer, so probably not. Has anyone made contact with him about this yet?

Here's a guy doing it right. He sells 2 variations of collar disks on eBay, only $25 a pair, and the rears are even marked REPRO so there's no one using his product to scam

Been awhile since we've seen one of these pieces of crap...whoever is making them tried to go with loops this time, and a double stamped London. Sadly, already has a bid at 40 bucks on eBay

This piece of crap brought $331 on eBay awhile back. We've seen countless goonie emblems from whoever is churning this out, they branched out into a 'dancing bird' variant and added a Firmin mark for added BS

I was shocked when that one sold. There were some good pieces up at the same time too.

I bought one of these for $20 this weekend but the seller did give full disclosure that this was a reproduction - I liked it anyway - I think I will put this on my MCL Cover
