I apologize if this may have thrown you under the bus.

Lastly, I'll give you the biggest clue as to how I figured out the fakes:

One does not put a $80,000 AP Barichello in the same box as a $1,000 U-Boat. One who owns a Lange would be embarrassed to show off a Tag in his collection. If you want to make it believable, you should play the part.
No apology needed. One of my VERY early posts a while ago talked about how some of mine were reps. So, my fault for not reiterating that.

And as far as "playing the part," that's all a matter of taste. Weather it be watches, cars, etc. I buy what I like. I don't care what other people think. I have $120k in cars in the garage and a 1973 Ford F100 in the driveway. I drive the F100 more than I probably should. Why? Because I like it. Its all personal taste.
