    Initial gut reaction is that its real, but it can be hard to see key points in pics. Lots of fakes and some very good fakes. Id have a metallurgical test for compostion and also a detailed look at the edge for a seem line.

    Fling it down on a wooden table top. If it "rings" it's probably ok. If it thuds, it's a dud.
