Another Chinese Seller on eBay is Peddling Fakes

I got a heads up from Dave Panko on this latest seller. His name is 2011tophunter. It’s impossible to tell if he is related to discountbar or just in the same business. Here is the patch that Dave contacted me about and his information. Right now it looks like he is also scoring some bids on a fake Nanuk 355 OA Flap


OA BSA Lodge 378 Gila ArrowCorps5 Silver Mylar Border Flap



The Gila Lodge flap silver mylar is a fake and is at least the second one sold by this group in China. I have had our patch company, Sunshine Emblem, review this and their manufacturer has assured us that they are not making these. They even sent us a file showing the difference between the one they made for us, Gila Lodge, and the one currently being offered on eBay. I have reported this to eBay, but no response has been made by them.





[SIZE=3]I’m working on a resource to help identify some of the new Chinese fakes out there. However, its hard to tell if bidders are going after these because they think its the real deal or some of them appreciate the novelty of owning a fake. To see what I mean click on this auction that is ending soon on eBay.

I’ve noticed with a lot of fakes that they rarely have a decent looking fleur de lis. They either look crooked,really scraggly,blobby, or just have odd proportions.

2011tophunter seems to be out of commission, but discountbar is still in operation. I noticed in one of his negative feedbacks that the buyer accused him of showing an original flap in the auction picture, but sending a fake instead. That’s outright fraud and he should be shut down, but collectors won’t know what the fake looks like unless he scans it . . . or someone buys it.

If I were you keep pestering eBay about it.
