Default Thoughts on this Mantle?





Anyone have any thoughts on this one? I told the owner I'd post it here as I'm on the fence.

I have not seen many counterfeits with a tilt cut or centering like this card.....however, I am always waiting for counterfeiters to add these flaws to the production of their product.

I'm skeptical mainly due to the coloring of the card. Doesn't look natural.

Wait no longer Larry because this card looks bad to me.

No question it's a bad card...

1. You cannot see the "rosettes" from the 4 color printing. This is usually a dead giveaway that it's a scan of a card that has been digitally reproduced.

2. The stock looks brighter on the corners and where wear shows. That means the "kraft" color is not the paper, it;'s a picture of the paper printed onto another kind of stock.

Beware.

Thanks all. I appreciate the feedback as I'm sure he does. The tilt made me question my initial no good assessment as did, what looks like, the honest wear.
