Yeah that's what I'd gathered too

The print on the presentation side appears smeared and distorted, with poor vertical alignment between characters.The Deacon wrote: ↑Thu Mar 12, 2020 8:22 am
Are you sure? My CC numbered CF BG-42 Military has the same print, with the bolder font on the presentation side. I can't say that was unique to the CF BG-42 version, but I can't say it wasn't. As for the other issues you and others have noted, there have been so many changes in the Military over the years that, without knowing when it was manufactured, it's darn near impossible to say what's "correct" and what isn't. Sad fact is that. regardless of make, the only way to be 100% sure pretty much any knife on the secondary market these days is legitimate is to send it to the manufacturer for evaluation. None of which means I would suggest the OP purchase the knife if he is not confident that it's real.

It's sad because comparing the pics side by side with a shop's it's almost on point.
