Sheffield Pals Shoulder Title Fakes

Since the early 2000's, fakes of the Sheffield Pals shoulder titles started to appear at militaria fairs and on dealers websites. A supplier of WW1 reenactors items was know to have been selling these and other titles to dealers.

These particular fakes have the identical flaws in the same places on the titles. These flaws do not appear on genuine period titles which are much smoother and cleaner die strikes.
