Quote from: Dennis on May 25, 2018, 04:17:15 PMI'm happy with the ones I bought and will likely buy many more. The quality is amazing, the prices are jaw droppingly cheap (especially with free shipping from China, I got mine in about 2 weeks) and they make interesting conversation pieces. To each his own, eh?

I don't mind the faking and the low prices either, as long as they are not touted as a "great investment" etc.I do wonder about how the originals were used. Were they a source of income for the hobos?Peter
