I imagined that the Royal Arms on the other might be fake and I'm thinking that the "Willof" might well be an italianization of "Willow".
I found it interesting that not only are the images between the three different producers slightly different, but the 2 I have from Cardiff are slightly different from each other. The Cardiff plates also seem to have the most "mistakes" on them. There are numerous blue marks where it should be all white and it appears that the transfer they used for the rim didn't fit (wasn't big enough) so they had to add a piece of pattern to fill the 1 inch gap that was left.
Thanks so much for your help and your time! It's been educational.
