Did someone get a great deal.....or is this a  fake?  Pics aren't the greatest but looks decent enough....if it's real then someone got a good deal?

Hello Raymond. Always nice to hear from you.  :)

From what I can see from these pictures, I would have kept my fifty dollars in my pocket. This piece looks rougher than a cob. We know these pieces have been reproduced. I think that perhaps this piece here may be one of the better made reproductions, but not good enough. When you look at a real one and you look at this one, IMO, there is just too much difference.

These were made in aluminum also. I have seen these sell for right at two thousand dollars, the black iron ones.

Thanks Perry...I was looking at the pics on my son's phone, so they were pretty dang small...the pic of the inside looked rough, but the pic of the outside looked nice.....so I thought maybe the inside was dirty from use,,,,,besides, my vision isn't all that great LOL

Any idea what real ones are going for?  Thinking of selling mine (and it's a real one LOL) as I don't use it and I'm starting to get rid of some things I don't use....
