    the font looks a bit wonky on yours - especially the horizontal lines.

    this is as well as the etching not following the curve of the orbital...

    Thanks for sharing! Thickness of lens not even throughout. Looks like it's dodgy.

    Don't go to any trouble as your initial comment confirmed my fears.

    Would you say this is how it should look?

    Yeah, the first example looks a bit shonky I'm afraid - the thickness of the T and L is very variable, the A is off, as well as not following the curve of the lens. Never paid much attention to the etching on the Romeo but that does look a shade amateurish.

    Is there a story behind the suspicious lenses?
