Fake Essex again.
 
Greetings.

The infamous Essex badge with the turret extending into the plinth has now reached itís 7th incarnation.

Well, to be honest, it was only to be expected from this peddler of fakes.

And whilst on the subject of fake Essex, I sincerely hope that nobody on this site even contemplates bidding on this piece of lovely junk from The Ron Collection.

I have to commend the first guy with the bad Essex badge for identifying it as a reproduction in the description.

Those of you living in the UK, should go to his address and give him a clip under the ear, and tell him that we do NOT like fakes being sold, even if he tell's people that they are repo's. It's not on old boy.

There is another member of this Forum who knows Ron far better than I, but I met him on a couple of occasions and did see some of his collection.

Ron was a collector, who did have some very nice badges, but also had a great many that weren't.

He would have somebody he knew create/fake/design/alter a real badge into something he thought/wanted/believed existed, others he fabricated himself.

In the recent past, I understand that a lot of his genuine stuff was sold and the remainder, which included the fakes/fantasies/copies etc were all bought by a general dealer.

In fairness, the chap who purchased this hoard knows as much about badges as I do in respect of nuclear fission and as a consequence was lumbered with a load of rubbish, which are being offered on ebay.

When the lockdown is over, I may well go to his shop and have a quiet word in his shell like.

That's the Ron story.

Regards.

That's the one I was telling you about Brian. I wondered how long it would be before it appeared. There are some really "rare" badges still to come!

Fatherofthree 06-03-21 09:13 PM

Thanks Andy.

No wonder I couldn't think of the badge when you were describing it. :D:D

Regards
