Ruiz,

It's a cast fake. Just the ring is a dead give away.

Nexorcist,

This one looks good to me; I believe that it is a 1950-60's issue.

To me this looks like a variation 2 with a slightly rounded ring, but I wouldn't mind seeing some better scans.

Andreas,

I tend to like it, but with such bad lighting, even a flying pink elephant could be mistaken for a bat :cool:
