    I am no expert on the PLM but I have a problem with the mismatching of the arms in the center junction of the first one:

    It's easy to tell, Real PLM is handmade, as you see that the golden one has 4 eagles with different details in each of them, it also has gaps between the legs. Meaning that the golden one is real. The silver one is FAKE, as its not made by hand
