    How can you tell this bolt is fake? Is it because pic 49 has a variation in the circlish area around the number and the striations on the rest of the flat area? That picture on page 91 of Kriegsmodell - 2902 renumbered bolt - is it that different?

    I don't have a clue of what is so apparent to the experts on this board?

    The bolt was discussed here: http://ww2weaponsforum.com/showthread.php?18735-byf-45 This auction is just a re-list of the first auction, but it boils down to the font.

    So I'll play this way, Some stuff is so obvious anyone who did 45 seconds of search engine would have known it was bad. I mean modern font have'n, grinder mark cover'n.. I'm giving away no secrets talking about those abortions. It's honestly the super good fakes that scare people.
