I’d love to buy 2 copies of that fake TK Honor ring to wear - it’s pretty good

I like the kantine skull. May be cast- that’s true. But it’s a very nice looking piece in any case to me. Might be first gen copy but I’m not 100% sure- could be hollow

I'd like to understand more...
What is "the first generation copy"? A copy made long time ago?

In this case I would say the early copies cannot reach the results of modern copies, even if most collectors still believe "old copies" were the best. Why do they think so? On which basis?
