    What's the going rate for an original Europa Gold "Royal Britannian Guard" blessed sash? For those that don't know this is the true source of the "Europa Gold" cloth. I see none of these for sale currently, only Amber Pigment knockoffs. Thanks.

    I haven't seen those prices since the day they were available on Europa, as the going rate on Europa for a fake one is 10mil, I'm looking for a real price not a fake price thanks.

    I'll post a picture of the one I bought. Also remember there are two different names.

    "Royal Britannian Guard"

    and

    "Member Of The Royal Britannian Guard"

    OK here is an interesting one.

    I just found the one you show in the screenshot above. I went to the vendor and used the Pinco hue ID on it, then I used it again on my sash to compare the colour read outs.

    The one your saying is fake tells me:

    HUE ID: 1177 Europa gold (soles of providence)

    The brighter "real" one says:

    HUE ID: 1174 Amber (burning amber)

    So according to the colour checker the one on SUO is real, and the brighter one is not europa gold.

    I found my "Europa gold" doublet which again is the same hue as the "fake" one you posted in the image above.

    Here is the HUE id reading from that.

    So my conclusion:

    [​IMG]

    Amber = RIGHT
    Europa = LEFT

    That's unless Pinco has an issue with the hue identifier at the moment.

    I know for a fact that the right one is europa gold, because right after the event I bought it off a vendor, logged, and haven't played the game for years,
    I log in and find out about this 'new' dye called "Aura Of Amber Pigment", this dye didn't exist when I bought the sash years ago, so yes the Hue thing
    you are using is mixed up, you indeed purchased a true Europa Gold Britannian sash for a cheap price!, I literally paid about that much for mine when it
    was new so you got a good deal, the Atlantic hoarders xfered tons of them to Atlantic, chopped them up and you usually don't find it other than crafted
    or as cloth pieces, 1 cloth of Europa Gold is worth X million, so yes 650k is a good deal even if you can only get 1 piece of cloth from it, but it's original
    form of course is more valuable.

    Here's the exact details of "Aura of Amber Pigment":

    It was released in Publish 74 on January 31, 2012 as a reward in the cleanup Britannia.
    It was taken away in Publish 75 on March 26, 2012.

    I didn't play UO a single second in 2012, the last time I played was about 3 years ago, every item from my inventory is 3+ years old at the
    newest.

    The "europa gold" cloth you can buy and craft with is the same colour as the sash on the left. This is what's confusing me. Also the same colour as the doublet I posted.

    I thought the brighter one was Europa gold at first, but bit more research seems to tell me otherwise. It's much brighter than any other Europa gold items. Lets hope someone else can shed some light on this little mystery.

    It's not a mystery. The one on the left is true Europa Gold, the 2 on the right are clearly 100% Aura of Amber Pigment, Unless you think someone can craft a death shroud, craft a shield and craft a sword from Europa Gold cloth. The sash does appear brighter but it is only an illusion, differing pieces of clothing appear 'brighter' and 'darker'.

    Thanks for the picture. Wow the one one the left it much nicer.

    I'll keep hold of that sash then :)

    So the cloth I see people selling as Europa gold is not actually Europa gold?

    If you search SUO for "cloth" on Atlantic your see what I mean.

    So the cloth for sale on some vendors is just plain cloth dyed amber and then sold as "europa gold" ?

    Most of it is, what's that Hue check program you have? Is it legal? where do I get it? I'd guess 99% of the "europa gold" advertised stuff is amber pigment, 3yrs
    ago before I left I bought up as much europa as I could, but could only afford so much, I mean the amber pigment goes for like 50mil for 5 uses, so 10mil per use,
    but if you dye a stack of a zillion bolts of cloth it isn't exactly 'worth' 10mil if it's just 1 body sash, if it's a cool artifact that's one thing but a normal body sash should
    sell for similar prices to slime clothes, like 10k tops, I see a normal body sash goin for 2mil, just because it's dyed.

    The colour ID tool I use is built into the amazing Pinco UI for the enhanced client. It lets you find out the number code and name of items within the game.

    It's totally legal and you can find out loads more information on this very forum:

    The one on the left is the original Europa Gold color...the sash that all the cloth was made from came from the sashes that said "Member Of The Royal Britannian Guard". After the initial release of these, of which each shard was awarded a specific color, the Devs released a second round of sashes from a turn-in that were labeled "Royal Britannian Guard". These 2nd sashes were available to all shards as a turn-in and the colors were different, a lot brighter gold and is the color of the sash on the right in the original post.
