worth 10? We'll see.

I saw a website selling modern repros but they were not the same as this one.

HI

Green was almost the only colour used in genuine 17th centuery Roemers.  However, due to their rarity, they are quite often reproduced and I would say without a doubt that it is almost late 19th or early 20th century
