What's the Gif on your signature? It looks familiar to me, just can't pin point it.

Strange one there Liam - a couple of red flags including bidder ID protected - colour looks a bit off as well and to be honest the end price is quite high even if it is genuine.

Thanks for the reply Iain. It is an interesting one?

Any other VCJ experts want to chime in?

I saw this when it was about £150, my first thoughts where its genuine...

Someone may have done a battle-damage custom on a repro cape. All his listings seem to be private and he is 100% feedback so that does not ring to many alarm bells for me. The colour can be hard to confirm from a picture.

The only problem for me is the width of the cape around the neck/shoulders. Looks a bit wide and flary, then again it was the 70's :wink: It might be a bit short at the bottom to, but this could be the creasing.

If I was after one I might have had a punt on this but not at that price...
