Lots of these around, sadly, often sold as what they are though, hope you did not pay much for it!

Most genuine examples will have four sweat holes (two on the coronet and two on the title scroll) you would expect to pay 30-40 quid for one.

They are very common, where have you actually been looking, if ebay, the majority are completely spurious?
