so i put one bid in, not expecting to succeed.
but on opening the packet at the Delivery office i was pleasantly surprised by its excellent lid fit, and tho the spout seems narrow, the pour is good and precise, stopping up the hole stops pour, its got a neatly made filter, general finish inside is good, seems to have a bit of real age to it, no bootpolish yet, im reconditioning it tho its 260ml
chop on base has a monkey in the corner
im sure ive seen reference on here to a 'monkey' chop, cant find it tho

If I feel this topic is going off course again, I will move posts as deemed necessary.
I will open a new topic for all the posts split off of this topic and will link it here:
That topic will discuss general authenticity issues, etc.
