Veteran of First Cav. Army

I got this recently and must confess that I like the look of it. But points raised on "another forum" made me post it here. Are these faked? Have anyone seen one?

Opinions welcomed.

Kim,

These ARE faked (what isn't these days?) because it is a very popular area, and because (I believe...) that the 1st Cavalery Army was commanded by Budenniy.
I have seen once an original, and they wanted huge money for it.

I can't say I'm surprised Marc. But if they are faked have you seen the fakes? Those must be easier to find than the originals.

I saw one briefly on a seller's listing this year. He wanted 250usd for it. But I haven't any pics of that one.

Kim,

I did see a few fakes. Rather well made, with hot enamel.
