    Sorry for the bad pictures at first, but now I learned that quality of pictures means everything.

    Not a problem. I am just glad this authentic example was vindicated, and not deemed a fake. It is a good thing you didn't discard it.
    Photography can be quite tricky, actually, and this is why it's always best to learn the information yourself. This way it will get the proper analysis, and isn't judged based on inaccurate characteristics. I can't stress enough how important, A) learning the knowledge of this hobby yourself is, and B) when determining whether a item is original or not, having it in-hand. Even some of the best photographs still don't show the items true aspects, especially in regards to cloth items such as this and tunics.
    Add: The only reason I suspected your tab was possibly authentic, thankfully, based on the first set of photographs was due to when I photographed this variant it was in horrible lighting and with a camera phone. The images came out the same as yours, which are quite misleading.

    Remember this: for bullion tabs always straightshots on the runes and in daylight (no flash).
