Geli- thanks! Hope you joined!

Anonymous- that's strange, there's a ton of entries so I'm pretty sure it's viewable. I think it's your computer settings then? It's perfectly viewable on mine.

Slavic- if it's an SE short handled brush, it is possible that it's real. But if it's the regular long-handled 187, I'm pretty sure it's a fake. Goodluck!
