Collier Reproductions and Fakes – Who and Why?

“Clockwork Basilisk: The Early Revolvers of Elisha Collier and Artemas Wheeler” is available right now for preorder on Kickstarter: />
Today I’m again joined by Professor Ben Nicholson, author of the newest Headstamp Publishing book, Clockwork Basilisk. We are discussing the different sorts of fake and reproduction Collier revolvers, although the subject is pertinent to many other highly desirable antiques. A few of the points considered:

– Fraud for profit vs reproduction homage
– Value of fakes
– Faking pre- and post-internet
– Provenance and its importance
