Need someone to authenticate an MPP

As some of you may recall I bought an MPP on Ebay that was claimed to be real. AS it turned out it was a Parks. Just got a response from Paypal regarding my complaint and now I must have a third party confirm what I say to be true. Can anyone here who is an MPP expert help a member out and attest whether or not the MPP is real. I don't have anyone in my city that could do it. I don't know where else to turn.

Thanks,
Scott

Could you call Parks himself and see if he'd help you out? I'd think the maker of the replica would be about as "expert" as Paypal should need to ID it as such.

Gone but not forgotten.
I would bet he can be trusted to stand by his product...you loose nothing by trying...give him a call...

An even more credible "witness" would be Ghost Host...who supplied the MPP to Parks.

He is also an expert on MPP's (the real ones).

Hey Scott

Sorry to hear that.
Remember, I also bought a Parks MPP, that was sold as the real deal.

I took all the comparsion pics I made and added them when filing against the seller. Ask the service guys over at paypal if they´d accept those.

Just curious, how does one tell the difference between a real MPP and a Parks? If Parks made his replica MPPs with a real MPP as reference wouldn't his replicas be identical in every way?

I have a real MPP but not a Parks so I have no basis for comparison.

...I'm no MPP expert, but I would suspect that a real MPP would have some corrosion and/or wear somewhere....whereas the replica would be clean everywhere....

My MPP is in near mint condition. I know, it has the wrong shroud...but its still a vintage MPP :p


It only has some very light wear on the clamp and very light scratches on the body, which I believe can be easily duplicated on a brand new Parks MPP by someonw intending to sell it as a rela MPP...

The inside of mine is spotless.
