This Wednesday (October 15) please join us for a lively discussion on a sometimes taboo subject. We will be looking at best practices for determining the relative value of handguns, rifles, shotguns and ammunition. We’ll also touch briefly on collectibles.
The strange man in a trench coat at the street corner is a classic cartoon image… “Have I got something to show you!” he says, opening his coat to reveal five rows of Rolex watches. In places like New York City, the trench coat has been upgraded to a folding table and chair. Louis Vuitton handbags, Ray-Ban sunglasses, Gucci heels, Michael Kors bracelets and the classic Rolex replicas …. Or are they knock-offs? We know these cheap products are counterfeits, but can you tell the difference between a replica and a knock-off? Your best guess at telling if something is a fake is to look at the label. On the item in question you see “Made in China.” You determine it’s a counterfeit. But, today many retail items on store shelves at your local mall are made in China and are indeed authentic designer brands.
