post #91096 of 115124

Lil help, please?

 

Is this ostrich legit? I read up on how to spot fake ostrich and it seems real to me (no repeating patterns as far as I can tell, a couple of the bumps have 'pores') but I'd like a second opinion.

Thanks! The stone is real. The pearl head seems to be something else. I touched it to my teeth and it felt too smooth, but I'm not 100% on that. the smaller ones seem like they could be tiny pearls, but I'm no gem expert.

Does anyone have any idea how old this label is?

Approximately 1982, based on the RN number. This is only approximate, but it's definitely probably early '80s.

http://www.ebay.com/gds/Clothing-Labels-RN-and-WPL-and-CA-/10000000003229985/g.html

Formula:
Your RN #
-13670 (first RN # in series)
Total #s between the original and yours/2635(average #s issued per year) = # of years since issue date
1959 + # of years since issue date = estimated year of issue

So,
75654
-13760
=61,894
/2635
=23.4
+1959
=1982

Holy shit! Giuseppe! I've been reading your blog from the beginning! Absolutely love it. I always wondered why you weren't on this thread as well, it seems right up your ally. Anyhoo, I look forward to seeing some of your finds and also how that chesterfield turns out. Cheers! -E

I've only hit one store so far today. If I stopped right now, and went straight home, I'd still be satisfied.
