    Early post-WW II Panasiuk replica often sold as an original. Note that the font on the reverse is sans-serif (letters like "I" or "J" don't have the little horizontal strokes across the top or bottom). Bottom right shows a close-up of a die flaw present on some of these replicas (4th feather down of the wing on the right side of the centre medallion).
