    Both are modern fakes, though sadly the previous posters did not recognise them as such. They have the pitted fronts, pebbled reverse and soft soldered brass pins that are all wrong and are typical of this type of fake. I hope you have not bought them based on the previous posts.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I would concur with Jerry. He knows these well.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Best to look at good originals on this forum of whatever you decide to buy first. Here's one to compare pins to.
