    I'm afraid it's a fake. Very poor quality, soft details. Originals are quality pieces.

    Thanks, Adrian. I knew it had to be but just checking. The price was far too good to be true!

    Adrian is spot on there!

    Even at first glance it looks poor quality

    The ring that the ribbon goes through is actually missing on this example. There should be loop passing through the suspension ring. Have a look at the example below. It's a '57 version but the setup is exactly the same.....
