    Original boards, but with fake GD cyphers.

    Hello,

    IMO these cyphers are original fourth type cyphers (see Scott Pritchett GD book volume 1 pages 335-338)
    The die stamping produced straight sides and wide flanged areas.
    Good patina on these less elegant pattern cyphers.

    Regards,
    Thierry

    Blaine was nice enough to send me some photos for my inspection and I didn't see any indication of being cast, unless there's something I'm missing.

    These are supposed to be the ones off the shoulder boards in the original post?

    Based off my photos these are nothing close to cast. Can you elaborate how these are not authentic? They look identical to 4th pattern cyphers in the Scott Pritchett GD book
