I wonder, there is the latent request to get the V&C's as cheap as possible. On the other hand the aficionados are often not able to to distinguish relevant of irrelevant.

Maybe you are right because of the VF case that could be clarified, VF very well produced cases like this. That could explain the difference between 6k to 12k but only if there would be the magnificant VF style also. But anyway it is definitely an authent...
