    if the cuffband is indeed a fake then $2495 for 2 daggers and 2 basic badges is expensive as hell,

    HJ`s $400 each sometimes a lot cheaper
    dj $80
    prophicency badge $100

    gives a grand total of $980

    The cuffband is imitating an RZM pattern cuff; as such, definitely fake (bs for short).

    If I could buy HJ's in that condition for $400 each, I'd have a very large collection of extremely good conditioned pieces!

    Take a closer look at the knives - one appears to be an early no-ricasso knife, probably maker marked only, with motto in superb condition, and the other I suspect is a later RZM only, no-motto knife, also in top condition. This would lead me to believe the cuff title is a reproduction based on the prices that top condition HJ's are getting currently. I've seen knives in this type of condition sell for over $1000 each.

    I agree Mike - the knives look in top condition, but you'd need to see the reverse in case of any trapped moisture or humidity finding its way into the display case. Looks like it should be ok but TW's description says the box is sealed so I don't think pics of the reverse will be forthcoming. I think it will sell the way it is now though, but may take a while.

    im sorry russ but i would never pay $1000 for a HJ you can pick up good condition early,transitional and late HJ`s on waf regularly for between $350 -$450 they may start at about $600 but they allways come down to the $400 mark unless they are amazing and then its $600 tops

    Stu, I think you're correct on 'good condition' prices, but these are in a very high level of condition - not what you would normally see for sale on WAF that often, even for $600. I wouldn't pay that price either, but someone will. Mint or near mint HJ's are selling for over $1000 but you don't see them that often.

    Regards
