Far too much in my opinion, you would certainly struggle to get your money back any time soon.

Hi Tim,

Just a quick heads up that these repros are still doing the rounds and are an additional complication.

Regards,

Graham

Yes, they can still be had, plenty were manufactured and that's certainly where my money would go if I were Tim.

Here we go. Luckily, the reverse of an original one, although they vary, doesn't look like that. I first saw these about three years ago but they may have been around longer. They were being sold as copies at a militaria fair for a few pounds. I'm sure some will have found their way into the wrong hands
