A message from Lars on Knockoff Guild Pins
« on: Feb 19, 05, 10:49:23 am CST »

This post is made at Lars’s request, as he doesn’t currently have regular access to the Internet.

It has come to his attention that there is a vendor in Florida circuit selling guild pins.  These are not sanctioned pins.  These pins do not come with guild memberships, and are not in any way connected with Lars or the guilds he created, other than the fact that the pins where cast to look just like his.  The only way to be certain that you are ACTUALLY purchasing a guild membership along with a pin is to buy it from a Lundegaard Armory location, the Lundegaard web site or a booth where Lars himself is actually standing.

Lars is compiling information on the situation and asks that if you have any concrete information on any individual who is selling knockoffs that you PM me so that I can get it to him.

Thank you.

I saw 2 of these at the OHIO faire this past season (not being sold there tho) I set the two guys on the right track to becomeing rogues and to Lars' website to get all the info...they bought them in Flordia and were amazed when I told them everything they were "supposed" to get... last I gear they both bought pins from Lars for this season.

I'll see if I cant track down their e-mails (gotta dig thru all that crap from last season anyway) I do remember that the said they got 'em in Florida and they didn't look like a recast from an existing pin, the scribing on the text was diffrent... and it was a poor quality molding... they had no idea about the booklets, kiss cards, etc... I'll look toinght and tomorrow and let you know if I can find them otherwise I know I'll find them at Ohio this season.

Anything would be great, I will call lars later and let him know...

He asked me to keep reminding everyone on all the boards about what is going on.....not only is this his business, he does not want people getting qa "guild pin" and then saying how they never received the rest of the membership perks

Yes it is true, as I have said before, Lars has sent out unnumbered pins, hand etched pins, sharpied pins and stamped numbered pins.

Everyone who bought a pin from Lars, his site, NYRF at his booth or from other approved Lunde minions, you are fine.

The fakes are supposedly sloppy.

Also, if you buy a pin from a lunde person or boothie (not from his phone number or website) you probably got the pin and the packet was mailed to you.

If you are waiting on a packet from a pervious order, please send him an email, BUT KNOW HE HAS VERY INTERMITTEN INTERNET ACCESS!

All memberships come with a packet, so IF you bought a pin from a person and never was told about a packet, never received one AND the person did not work for the LUNDE, then PM me please and I will try to help you out as best as I can.......and figure out just what the heck happened.

As of now, it sounded like the fakes came from FLORIDA faires and that was all.....

I just hope it was a person who sold a few and then thought better of himself and stopped.....

Thanks,

Muffin

I've got some contacts down there (friends of friends mostly) who are already on the lookout in the FL circuit with instructions to pick one up if they find the vendor (along with the vendor info).

I'll pass word on as I hear it.

WOW!!! How unfair to Lars and even to all of us, the real guild members!

We shall keep our eyes peeled as we wander faires this season... and be sure to pass on anything we might hear or learn!
