hello to all,
first let me say thank you for this site.  from my "end" there were several days to a week or so that i could not find the site.  wow.  talk about missing a reference.  so again thank you for being here.
i am trying to organize my collection so that it is not just an accumulation.  with that in mind i just purchased a set that looks like a holland's but is not stamped as such.  if you go to "ranger sets", page 2 (ruler at the top of the page on page 2), it is marked #1C, "fake hollands".  there are interesting details.  the keepers and the tip are indeed one piece and die struck.  well executed on the sides and top of the keepers and the top of the tip.  now the buckle is a different beast.  the base appears to be die struck but without the ornaments.  the ornaments appear to have been struck and then silver soldered to the buckle.  i have seen gold ornaments laid on top of silver in the nelson sets but this is the first i have seen silver on silver.
since the publication of the sets has there been any information on who might have made these?
best regards,
bob w.
