    fireguyfire,

    Your thoughts are correct. The whole decal is wrong. It's details is a mix of 1st and 2nd pattern with probably no foil content.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Looks a lot like these two which are known fakes. The rune on the right is thinner that the left one. The colour is almost a perfect match as well.Aside from the slightly more rounded bottom, they are very similar.

    The picture shown on the right combines both the "Q" and "ET "characteristics.
    The one on the left is trying to be an "ET"
