Ann and everyone else. McCoy didn't make a red riding hood so if you see it=
 and it's marked McCoy, run away from it....unless you choose to confront t=
he seller about selling fakes.  Brush did make the cow with kitten on it's =
back but it's not McCoy...it's Brush.  I don't know if the reproducers have=
 done it and marked it McCoy or not....Beware...Hanson/Nissen/Hanson, vol. =
2...is a wonderful and up-to-date book that includes McCoy cookie jars.  Wo=
uld make a good guide for you to study....If it's not there, chances it is =
NOT a mccoy cookie jar.  Chiquita

as someone who buys and sells mccoy ... the repros just make me sick.  I kn=
ow one of the members of this list has a pamphlet out about the repro cooki=
e jars ... but seeing that red riding hood at private auction on Ebay just =
really makes me angry.=20=20
what else can we do?  there are always repros on good pottery items but it =
would seem this situation is more agressive than most ... even with the Ros=
eville repros ... one rarely sees such agressive marketing on Ebay.=20=20
would a group letter, signed by all of us and directed to the appropriate e=
bay department help?  I don't like sitting here and just getting angry.  my=
 name on it wouldn't help but yours, and some of the other people who've co=
llected McCoy for years would ... what do you think??=20=20
