Hi Mike

Very interesting and perhaps an email to the seller would put him right. It would also show up at the bottom so that no one would be caught out although the moment someone says "we are not professional graders...." That would be a red flag straight away.

If the seller actually states "genuine" he or she, very clearly, has absolutely no idea whatsoever, however, anyone that actually does, will not be "taken in" by these particular clasps, they could not really be any more obvious.
