    Sorry but that is a very bad fake.

    Here is what a Godet should look like---

    Of course not all will have the side hooks.

    The one shown at the start of this thread is commonly
    called the "muffin crown" fake and has been seen with
    several different makers marks, and hardware styles.

    Here is another example of this fake that was being sold on
    a well known dealers site. Note the different pin and markes.
    Also the addition of side hooks.
