FB User Matty Lee (and now newest TIG member Jawa Collectibles) sent me these pictures of a Burgundy Bib Fortuna, which he recently acquired.
Though he has no reason to distrust the cape, he just would like to have a second opinion from some experts on TIG.  

So what do you think, guys?

Also on behalf of Matty,

Looking at the first few photos it's a recent ebay purchase from one of our not so active members.

As for if it's legit, I've been stung twice with these things and it looks odd how the arms are so worn yet the rest of the cape looks new. My money is on fake, but don't ask me to prove/disprove that theory it's just my spidey senses acting up!!

Thanks Walkie. The pics certainly make the rest of the Cape look better than it is. There is real debate over this Cape. A few trusted Mexican collectors believe there are enough signs to suggest it is real. Others have a gut feeling it is not. Again it is just gut feeling
