I'm having the impression this is not an orginal shoulder title. Can someone confirm?

Hi Luc, Yes I agree with your suspicion. It is a reproduction that has been aged. A couple of points to note. The sprockets don't align in the same manner as an original, and there is no stick on the "a" in "and" on this repro.

Please elaborate on the "stick" you mention.

Thanks

Definitely a repro and there are other subtleties wrong as well.
If it were real, 127 GBP would have been a bargain.

Mike, compare the back of the "a" with this authentic one. See the difference in the "a".
