    Hi William, go back to post 4 of this thread. You can see a pic. I fear that I have given the community this slang term. But if it means it sticks in peoples minds this way, and saves them money, perhaps I should not worry...

    Hi all,

    I think this one is a fake, can anyone confirm please?

    The "O" looks round not oval, the middle of the "R" and the "P" also look a quite similar. Sorry but I dont have any better photos.

    Cheers, Mads

    The "tartan" weave to the rear of the letters is a big no no. Repro for sure.

    Hi guys, just adding another one in this thread.
    It's showing the correct details but i was wondering about the "S" and the shape of the second "A" which appears a bit misshaped. Is that ok? Also the middle of the "O" on the reverse is not oval but very rounded like a ball.

    There were tan and and a more olive green coloured edges to the titles that is all.

    I recently acquired this piece. After studying this thread I am pretty confident it is genuine because:

    • Middle green part of the R and P are different sizes
    • The O is more oval than circular
    • The A and F do not merge into each other.
    • The weave pattern on the back looks correct - not “tartan”



    But I am willing to hear second opinions from the more experienced collectors.

    Cheers!
