Default Antique ?

Not strictly a badge but hopefully the moderators will allow. This mounted kukri is described as "antique" and then there is a spurious reference to the 11th Gurkhas designed to add "authenticity" and history to the piece. I've written to the Auction House and said that its clearly a modern tourist piece (look at the screws on the label!) - a guide price of £300>£400 !! Buyers beware !
