I was posting while you were posting! Looks like our minds were also in sync regarding the analysis of this dilemma.
When Steve and I bought our red/amberina basket we actually thought we had found a previously unknown Davidson item. We got it at the Renningers Show in Pennsylvania, and so we thought it was a rogue English item that had been exported. And then we discovered that it was a recent Fenton piece - kind of shook us up a bit.
Fenton did take off the RD number! Beyond that, I can't tell the difference.
(Did I really say above that this was my final posting for now?
