Default WARNING - 100% FAKE 3rd State Butcher Cover on eBay...

I've decided to make a full on warning about this cover. It's got to the stage where I'm not going to let it go anymore.

There is a Butcher cover currently being sold on eBay as authentic, although the seller knows that it is 100% fake! All questions are answered in this webpage:
http://www.angelfire.com/retro/fakeb...fakebutch.html

Included is:
*How I know it's a fake
*Why I'm doing this
*How low the seller is being to try and sell it.

Thanks for listening. And please forward this webpage URL to anyone you suspect may be thinking of bidding on this cover. The Auction that is being targeted is http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI...tem=1510480877

STOP PRESS

It turns out that the person selling it now took the picture and description from the January auction which was the fake cover, and used it to try and sell their genuine cover. We've had a long talk about it and they've closed the auction and will relist their butcher cover using a pic of their actual cover and a description they've written. I'm keeping an eye on them and hoping it was an innocent mistake.

Thank goodness someone is paying attention to what's being auctioned & cares enough to make a fuss!

I have never bought anything on ebay because I know that I don't know enough about the collectibles to avoid getting ripped off.

Thank you Harb for being a "Martha" to us sheep!

Thanks. In this case it was a false alarm and the seller is now using a photo of their actualy butcher cover to use it.

Most of the time eBay is a great place to buy off. 2 of my best ever deals came through on eBay. A version 1 Intro with the oval logo for $30 (Worth $500) and a version 1 Intro with the brackets logo for $21 (Worth ($1,500)
