Great display item, would need to know more of it's provenance to be totally convinced on it's originality but I'd certainly display it in my collection. Not knocking it, just being honest.

Hey John. Item came from Bill Shea at the Ruptured Duck with a letter of provenance. I have no issues with its history especially with Bills reputation

I've known Bill for the best part of 40 years and reguard him as one of the best..... However, all of us are fallible and he is no different. I don't believe he would ever intentionally sell a clunker.....

Nice piece, great display, and you're pride and joy..... That's what matters.

I'd assume it's a P.O.W. item.
