' looks like a Jinbao 200...
The seller does state that the engraving reads "Alex" (not Alexander) and he states that it's probably made in China.

Now this is total misrepresentation of what this is:
On the bell “Schill by German Engeneering” and seller states “Made in Germany”https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F254178071352

Should I feel bad that I paid almost twice as much for a 186 that's not nearly as shiny?
