I had no idea how sophisticated the scam was, or how many weights were made, its mind blowing. And also very alarming.
I presume the mastermind was never caught, but is known to some. Not still dealing I hope :evil:
The second batch made in the 1990's, were they from the same source, or yet another scurge?
Having just read the information, I realise the weights I saw on Friday had small ground pontil marks, just like the photo. Certainly not flat.
The moral is, unfortunately, suspect every weight unless proved otherwise by a Ysart expert such as yourself or KevH.
The poor woman who lost her savings are the true victims in crimes like these, the forgers deserve to rot, not enjoy the high life. Only hope they get theirs some day :twisted:
