Beware collectors, YMSR is back!!

YMSR is a collection of sicilian fakes, listed by the french auction house CGB on June 2014, and withdrawn after the critical comments of an expert who “sounded alarm” on the main collectors board of the web.

Now some of that junk is again for sale, this time on the bay, listed by the french fake seller 2014.deden, without any reference to the original name YMSR.

Here the listings: http://www.ebay.com/sch/2014.deden/m.html?item=282008882251&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562

I cropped pics to post here for future memory (the mint attributions are those listed by the seller)…
