    Default Warrant Disc - real or fake?

    Hello,

    I have a warrant disc that belonged to my father and when he passed away I got it. I am going to assume it is a fake because of the number font and a few of the letters (A and I) appearing to be different and the fact the hole being drilled on the wrong side. Can someone confirm this for me please?

    Also, if it is fake, is it worth anything?

    Unfortunately this one is a fake. Without going into too much detail, everything you have concerns with is correct, it's all bad. Value is negligible as collectors won't touch these. Welcome to the forum.

    At one time they were being sold by World Wide Arms - along with similar items. Although they never advertised them as genuine, they never advertised them as reproduction either.
