Hi all,

I bought these cups about ten years ago and I was wondering if someone could tell me (just by looking) if these are genuine Paul Fox cups

Thanks,
Jorey

Sir Richard,

Thanks. Was that an April fools joke?

Hey jorey, glad you figured out how to post pictures! How about posting pic of the inside, and also a straight on profile picture.

Bill might let us amateur sleuths work for a bit before he come in and sets us straight.

There are certain characteristics that the cups that Danny Dew produced had that are obvious to me. These are present on this set of cups. I would say these are the real deal.

They look like type 2's to me, though it's hard to tell from one angle.

Donnie offered to take a look if I send them to him.

That's the standard PF/Danny Dew cup. The type 1 cups had smaller saddles, similar to the Connie Haden cups that Mario sold on eBay.

Go to http://69.89.31.132/~cupsandb/museum/roundedcups.htm and scroll down to the 7th, 8th and 9th photographs on that page (skip the drawing), and you will see two sets of type 1 cups and a set of type 2 cups.

Are the type One's more valuable? Are there type 3's and 4'?

Thanks
