    Hi Ado, I do not like the suspension ring. I would pass on it.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I agree suspension ring is wrong, there is an absence of stippling and detail is poor despite its poor condition.

    Look at this original suspension ring

    I reckon someone has taken a file to this fake to try and improve the poor shape of the ring....Look at the difference in tone of the metal. The highest point is unworn while the other parts are brighter.

    Thanks for the pic of a real one Nick.

    Cheers, Ade.
