Definitely can't please all the people all of the time, but I did want to give it a fair shot and be sensitive to peoples' concerns.

I think you've been extremely fair throughout this process Steve and we all appreciate it!

You've gotten the range of opinions about the replica since you've posted the pictures of it.

My opinion:
Quoting Darksyne:

It also appears that the VR is a different font compared to the one that Curt posted.

Overall however they look fantastic!




I would like to see the VR corrected while we have a chance to update the die but that is only my opinion.

Quoting brunoboy:

Stop complaining, beggers cant be choosers



Quoting brunoboy:

At the end of it all, you cant satisfy everyone, you and a handful of others did get the ball rolling but some need to understand that if they dont like it, then dont buy it, im not trying to be an asshole but i am being real.

You posted no feedback about the sample good or bad and are effectively telling people to STFU when they post theirs.

I have enough respect for forum members to not call them names but you're not being "real".

Unfortunately there isn't a chance to "update" the die. To make changes would require art changes and a new die to be created, to the tune of another $250.

To me, the point of getting the sample made was to ensure that the overall "quality" or "feel" of the piece was satisfactory to me. The sample came out looking just like the art rendering, and no one criticized the "G", "VR", and "4" when I posted up the art rendering. I was more concerned with the end product being of good overall quality, not cheap feeling, not the wrong color, etc.

I didn't post feedback because it didn't bother me, I liked it, its going through, end of story, if i had a problem I would've said something. I didn't tell anyone else but you, because your the only one who said something about that it should be exact, going back and looking for that response, I see you deleted it.

Thanks for doing all of this, You got it done, its a lot more to say you tried and got us something rather than nothing. They look very good and I will be sure to rock mine everywhere I go.

It's a good thing you didn't, an e-thug would have told you to STFU.

It's all good, I'm not here to get in pissing matches with people I just don't appreciate being told to shut up when I post my opinion.

Nobody asked you for your opinion did they, so STFU fool!!! j/k

You got the ball rolling on this, but Steve's getting all the glory (not glory hole). Love you Steve.

I think the replica fobs in this thread look better than the previous attempts and I agree that it's probably better that they don't EXACTLY match the originals so folks can distinguish between these and the original.

Out of curiosity... in case I missed it.

Did they give you an ETA for the first signs of arrival?

Yes they said the order should be complete by the end of November.

I'm trying to work out the engraving font still. They have a triple Roman font, which looks very close to the originals but when it is engraved small, the lines seem to run together and it just looks like a solid font. I asked them to bump up the size a bit, from 1.0pt to 1.1pt font like the originals seem to be. I'm not quite sure if that addressed the issue, I requested some better pics. They did show me an engraving at 1.2pt font and you can clearly make out the separate lines in the letters, but it is definitely bigger than the stock engravings then.

My personal opinion is that the engraving on the originals looks pretty poor. Very light.

If you could match the font, but have something that was a bit more deep or thicker, that would be great, IMO.

Then again, I could probably ask for blanks and do it myself then.

I'd rather not have to bother with trying to get it engraved myself, though.

I thought I smoked to much, then re-read your post, flipped back to page 1, then skimmed the Spread.... then noticed.

Actually I did not send the document to them in that format, I simplified it down and sorted by the "Engraving" field. So the first ones on the list are actually the blanks.

Payment from Nathan Schneider has been received, spreadsheet updated, order updated.

I can not add any more to this order. Please do not send payments. If you aren't in the order already, we shall see how many extra blanks I have after I fulfill the existing orders that I received. Thanks everyone!
