You can be pretty damn sure, but before you buy research it mate. Gold is at an all time high and you are buying pretty near pure gold that has been fashioned. Its sold by the baht weight. One baht is about 14.5 or 15 grams. And the price is based on the current price of gold. You can ask to see the baht weight price and its about what 12,000 baht I guess now. So you must have been looking at a Mr T piece. The work shouldnt ever be more a small figure, I dont know how they do it. No more than 10 -12 percent for the labor of making the article. Google it up, I'm watching the kids and typing.
