    Hi Phil, I don't like these. I am certain they are Indian made fakes.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade

    I did notice that the serifs are not as defined and the "4" don't have any. Also the backing on reflection doesn't look "English" made.

    cheers

    Thanks LUCN

    The font looks to be "Charlemagne Standard" or similar type font , wonder if this was done deliberately?

    Thanks again

    It is commonly referred to as serif type, but no specific font I believe. This is often found on unofficial and high quality private purchase titles, I suppose simply because it looks nice?
