    Hi Toolus,

    This is a common fake fantasy design, it never existed in period. But today it is found in a variety of guises, often being marked 'L/4' 'L/16' and '21' as well as some being unmarked. Designs might vary ever so slightly, but they are all based on the same bogus format. Here's some examples.

    Unmarked.
