This comparison shows the right side lock plate from each gun. The top photo is of the authentic A-3 20-bore while the lower photo is from the fake. Note the anatomical differences in the pointer depictions from the top to lower plate; and also note the differences in the cuts of the scroll. Note also that the gun name L.C. Smith is gold inlaid on the original, while it is not on the upgraded fake.
