Paul,

I do like Photoshop. It has some excellent features and comes in really handy for work such as this.

Best wishes

Here's the DoM clasp that you can buy on eBay compared to two original clasps.



You can see the bottom clasp has greater relief (no pun intended!) and thicker characters than the originals. The wider characters also means the overall with of the words is greater than the originals and there is less space between the individual characters.

There is an erased QSA for sale on eBay and the owner does acknowledge that the clasps are tailor's copies. A genuine RoK clasp has been added to the base of the image as a comparison.

I also saw that one with the stack of copy clasps. If it went cheaply, it would be a good collector's illustration of the difference between the copies and the real ones - and also to see if there was any difference in construction. Not worth much, though!
Best regards
