    Very true. Ebay just seems to be more replete with fakes than not. I have found other fakes trying to get passed off on Gunbroker and others before as well. Like they always say, knowledge is power.

    1. buy a set of stamps
    2. stamp wood
    3. sand cartouches to make it look "worn"
    4. take a few chunks of the wood out to make it look "used"
    5. stain wood
    6. weather wood
    7. immediately list on ebay as "original" and sell it to the highest unsuspecting sucker of a bidder.

    I feel sorry for the poor soul who got taken on this one. Rule #1 in buying mil surp related items on the internet.........NEVER and I mean NEVER shop on ebay. Way too many fakers out there.

    I can do better than that with my stamps. Sometimes I wish I was that dishonest....no, not really.
