New EURO fake chinstraps

Just wanted to warn you about these new EURO fake chinstraps. These are on the market now since 2 years and I see these are now moving beyond the dealer site I initially spotted these on. I have these already on my fakes chinstraps page but spotted some for sale (and sold) today on another dealer site.

They are being sold for 125 euros.

Don’t get caught with one of these as they are a waste of money. If you have one make sure to send it back to the dealer.

The buckles are always unpainted steel ones , sometimes reflective and sometimes they have a more blued look. The long part can sometimes even be married to an original buckle. 

Take note of the deep stamp and the font , the buckle holes and the lower quality iron parts and stitching.

These are being mass produced and I even suspect they change the maker and RB nrs with each batch they produce.

I haven’t seen them in US dealer inventory so this seems to be a EURO only problem.

Happy hunting,

Frank.

    Well spotted Frank. the first suspicious feature is the stamping with that font, then all the rest buckle included.
