    I cant get my head round the difference between fakes and originals of this complex award but I am still going to say 'Congrats Roger' !

    Thanks, Nick. I'm not yet 100% convinced of the originality, but they come up so rarely I jumped on this one. We shall see.

    The arched "M"s and the low 9 are the giveaways that I see here. I agree with Harry that this is a copy...There's a great thread on this topic...
    cheers, Glenn

    Thanks, guys. After I got it I had that old feeling . . . This one will be going back, unless I decide to bite the bullet and keep it out of circulation. I did a search and found the thread you mentioned, Glenn. What's that saying about a fool and his money . . .

    Bad luck Roger Send it back mate.

    I have always wanted to add a Memel to my collection but they are so heavily faked due to the small numbers awarded I havent had the confidence to buy one despite studying them on forums etc.
