WARNING - MMTO with diamonds on Ebay

Recommended Posts

Dear friends, now is running auction on Ebay with "Military Order of Maria Theresa with brilliants" see link:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Order-Of-The-Diamond-Maria-Theresia-Imperial-Austrian-Gold-Medal-Austria-Hungary-/281417501485?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4185ca4b2d

This order is desribed as "old Antique Imperial Austrian order in highest RARITY. Magnificent Imperial Austrian Workmanship.", but that is not true!

Is it copy made by KLENAU company with NO HISTORICAL VALUE. The seller (member of GMIC) describe himself as "not expert" but this is another lie....so be careful with bidding!

Poor soul who bet 3800 USD! Also very strange that the pictures are so blurry. Thanks for the warning, although I had no plans of bidding ;)

A few years ago a Grand Cross badge of this same order (and manufacture), mounted on a sash of the Order of the Crown of Italy, appeared on eBay; then sold before the "auction"'s end.

By the way, it's typical, on eBay, to read remarks like "I'm not an expert, etc.etc.", after an apparently so-so scientifical or überdetaillierte description...

Best wishes,

E.L.
