Hi Naga,

Copy? Yes - sorry.
Original sets of so many identical weights like your elephants are never on the market. The masses are wrong. They should be e.g. 15 - 31 - 37 - 62 - 124 grams, in Burma 326 - 83 - 32 - 16 - 8 grams - no values in between. Thus your serie is a nice set made for tourists. Enjoy it, but these elephants are no weights.

Best :-)

Thanks Hartmut and Gao,
both are right - of course. But unfortunately the quality of the fake is not really bad. Take a look at wear and tear, how they made the "used look", the corners of the base are rounded and so on. Clear fake, but someone thought about that and made a good job.
