    Anything is possible. Except stapling water to a tree. ;)

    I've never seen an illegitimate serial etched in.

    6 digits, font looks about right...
    Are you concerned because it's off center?

    Leaving some air in the room for the real Romeo experts, my thought is that the first Romeo is legit.

    Everything else about it seems appropriate?

  8. It could be faked fairly easily but it would take more effort than most fakers care to put forth. Romeo serials are off center sometimes, I wouldn't worry about it unless you have other concerns.

    they seem legit. i have a few off center serialed romeos but the frames are exactly like the others that are centered. if you have the romeo in your hand, you can easily tell a cheap knock-off from the real thing, serialized or otherwise...
