Default Kuban shield opinions please

Hi Guys,

Please could I get some thoughts on this one? Is this a known copy?

Many thanks,

Patrick

Hi Patrick,
Yes, in my opinion this is indeed a fake.
Not a well known one, probably it is so close to the real one.

Mmmm interesting Kuban....Pascal what makes you think it's a fake?

For sure details are very soft compare with the original version of this one but ...what other red flags do you see?

When I look at this shield I see bad eagle head and bad breast details

OK, so now I see it explained. So what's a real Kuban worth and who's selling one?
