Wow that sounds really cool. I'd want to see all the documentation and look it over very carefully. I don't know that I can spot a really good fake but I have seen a few examples of bad ones. Like the screws being wrong, parts not being all serialized etc.

1200 seems a bit inexpensive for a for it not being a repro. At any rate I'd love to see pics if you do get it.

If i get it pix are going to be ample and at my best guess the way to spot a fake is by first paper if it matches then we move to disassembly and i was looking at a few and last night and documented peaces in fair to good condition are going from 3-4500 so im good at 1200 but that dont mean i will pay that 1200 was his first offer im thinkin we should open at about 700 and go from there
