Default GFM Collar Tab

Hi All,

This is the only image I have, but would greatly appreciate your thoughts as to it’s originality please. I understand if the image is not of a clarity to make a decision.

Kind Regards

Allan

Alan.. I like the Celleon, it looks like a good one.
How ever not a fan of the rounded corners on the red base.

IMO the lack of precision in the details is saying this is a reproduction. Compare the 3 bottom points on the leaves and as well as the left end "point" being off center.

I found these two examples on The Marshals Baton with rounded corners.

Thank you all very much for your comments so far.

Pauke, you mention IMO the lack of precision in the details is saying this is a reproduction. Compare the 3 bottom points on the leaves and as well as the left end "point" being off center.

I think I understand your meaning. However, the following examples show, either lack of detail or left point being off center.

Kind Regards

Allan
