hi guys what you make of this, it looks like he's sent it off for grading and got it sent right back ungraded due to the fake cape,
what you all think i wouldn't touch with a 50,000 foot bargepole personally, but its up to £50
EDIT DD: removed the link to the active auction.

Hi & welcome to TIG.
Unfortunately there are a lot of different coloured squid capes out there & the origins/legitamacy of some is still up for debate. However, a lot of the unusual colours are a result of discolouration or being dyed/bleached. I'm sure that is why this one was not graded. Some people still buy them for the novelty factor.
Here is a link to one of several discssions that have been had here on the subject: http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t1147-orange-cape-squidhead
For future reference it is not considered acceptable to post a link to an active auction (I believe posting a picture is fine) as it can attract additional attention to the item which may not be welcomed by the existing bidder/s.
I hope this is of some help
