    Are you sure?
    So many "wowzer" 43s that get posted are re-plated.

    Those pics are too bright to tell but 3 clues look like it may be re-plated. Too bright looking, it has blue tint, it has funky doubling on the 4.

    Normal ones should be dull satiny, no blue tint and are not really plated on the outer rim edge.

    Noel, I think you may have gotten your answer about the apps ability. I would put Ed up against your Lookzee any day of the week. Now if you had Ed writing the computer code for the app, then you might have something!

    Another thing I have noticed that points to a plated 43 is the rim around the face of each side is noticeably thicker, just like a lot of the other devices on the coin.
