    I'd say it's a reproduction, and a very, very good one. The give away is the side edges, they are too sharp, whereas the outer edges of the text and lip are rough like you'd expect. Mother nature doesn't discriminate with weathering. Not a sign of the original black paint either, and it's missing two mounting lugs at the back, which wouldn't be in a casting, only an original. I could be wrong, but I smell a long tailed rodent.

    50 absolute tops, IF it were the real deal. Seen this seller before, panders to a guillable US market.

    Complained that he listed a BR(M) sign as being Irish, he re-listed as being from 'Northern Ireland'. Pure chancer.
