Default DKiG Case Opinions

Hey guys, this is an area I'm weak in. I got this case in and I'm a little unsure about it. So, before tossing it to the side, I wanted to get it checked out. I really appreciate any input on it!

Dave, this one looks like a copy and I'd stay away from it.

Hi Dietrich, it has the same split hinge style and donut around the button as this one, which was a fake. I also don't recall seeing a donut on the button before, have you? It seems they were either the mushroom head on the early style or straight pin type you'd see on a type '20'/'134' case.

Hey George, this is exactly why I posted this case for discussion. I have only been familiar with the two button types you had mentioned. In this hobby I know that is not enough to pass judgement. I'm just not familiar enough with these cases myself. So I asked for help.
