    I did happen to find that site - thank you for letting me know it is a well respected resource. I do not understand what it is about the E and I fonts that make the fake stand out from the original.

    It's the shape of the letters, the serifs, that are the big no-no. But in the case of your disc, the obvious main difference is the letter 'O', that alone is enough to condemn it.

    The serifs on the "A"s appear to be only on the top left whereas the authentic examples the serif is also on the top right.

    Looks like a change of server in the intervening years Dan. Well spotted, I've edited my original post to show the new link.
