Vigilance on Fake Checks

I notice Mulliner has bought a kilo of soft solder and he has been embossing NCB on common checks faked up to less common checks. So watch out for solder sandwiches or embossed alloy checks from him

Re: Vigilance on Fake Checks

Is this check a fake or a genuine one?????????????
No220563550236 It looks a little shady to me.

Re: Vigilance on Fake Checks

These are genuine old checks, not recently made. However what kind of mine they relate to I do not know. I have several different ones in my collection. Mark Smith - Moderator of this site - did do an article or post on these, but I cannot locate it.

Item number 370337897230 NANTGWYN RING PIT CHECK

This is washer with the words printed on

****ED...You are not selling anything.

Re: Vigilance on Fake Checks

The above message is not Trehafod, It is Mulliner up to his old tricks of impersonation.
And he would not recognise a very rare genuine check if it smacked him in the face with a bell on!!! Dream on Sunshine, you will never acquire real genuine rare items, and you will NEVER be accepted into the NMMA.
