Well...... I would not; even if I needed examples! The lettering on the SA1901 clasp is broken and irregular, that on the SA1902 is horrible, the lettering on "Driefontein" is far too bunched and the lettering on "Wepener" is also misaligned and irregular.
Only my opinion, of course.

Mike,

A great example for this thread. I would say all 4 are copies of varying quality.

Best wishes

This RoM has just appeared on a QSA on eBay. The seller acknowledges the recipient is not entitled to it.

At least seller states that he is not entitled to Wepener clasp......
