Fakes Galore
Because genuine historical memorabilia - like this phenomenal Queen Victoria horse brass - is scarce, and harder to find as the years go on, it fetches increasingly high prices.

As a result unscrupulous antique sellers and dealers are making fakes to satisfy the market of gullible buyers eager to own a piece of history. And ebay has been a godsend to forgers, expanding market for fakes to every corner of the world.

We offer this handy consumers guide to ebay memorabilia fakes as a public service to consumers around the world.
