You can tell by the print on the whistle that it's recent and not old. It's a shame bidder's identities are hidden these days or somebody could warn the bidder that it's a con.

He has three different 'cup final whistles' on there. I've reported all three to Ebay saying I think they're fake. We'll see what happens! Smile

I've also reported every whistle this chap has advertised.
Interesting to note that, in addition to the three fa cup final examples, the exact same font is used for the 1915 copa del Rey and the 1950 charity shield.

Unfortunately Ebay are not interested if it is fake or not - they just want their fees. I have given up reporting fake autographed items and the like as nothing ever gets pulled. Even items with so called authenticity documents are often not worth the paper they are written on.

I am afraid that this is the culture we are now in - Caveat Emptor

I messaged him.....asked if they were from the actual match..his reply reeks of conman....

Hi,
I don’t know much about them to be honest but I have read somewhere
that copies were made in the 30’s and 40’s but having no specific
provenance it’s hard to be sure. I would say if you have doubts then
probably best not to bid.

I seem to recall when you recently joined the forum, i amongst others welcomed you and asked if you would care to share some of the items that you have as you told us all you have been collecting for over 40 years and are interested in Pre-War items but to date some months later there was not even the courtesy of a reply even if to say that you were not interested in sharing anything. It is of course your choice not to show anything, but i think that it would have been good manners to reply.

There was also a 1948 Refs Whistle as well that was sold by this same reprobate who resides in Scotland who is not British but is making a living out of scamming folk.

This 1948 Whistle was not on ebay but another collector i know was contacted by "someone" who pointed him in the right direction for this Acme Thunderer for just 200 quid. When it became evident that this toe rag was buying in original old Whistles and having them engraved i sent images of the 1948 Whistle[that the collector sent to me] to Acme Whistles as i knew person there and had had conversations with him before. On the images i sent he confirmed the whistle was one of theirs but the engraving was not original and it was in effect worthless. I advised the collector who contacted Acme and he sent it to them and they confirmed it was not original and destroyed it for him as that is what he wanted. Personally i would have kept it and used it advise others and perhaps one day shove up the guys rear end if i came across him.

Fortunately, these are all originals thankfully! https://flic.kr/p/6kHmAH

Me thinks that somewhat may have switched the items as the Villa whistle clearly says Real Madrid on the engraving.
