Silver somethings?


Recommended Posts

Frankly I'm concerned that they all look the same - the vast majority of originals were lost in the 30s when China demonetized, and many more in the late 70s during the run up in silver price - almost all of the ones seen today are reproductions made in varying grades of alloy as well as the odd older fake.

Two pieces that I purchased from a collector of East Asian artifacts who got them in the mid-80s, and whose collection of knives and swords was unquestionable genuine, turned out to be fakes - both turned out to be mostly lead.
