Ive got this saber and wonder if its real or Fake. Main thing that points to fakness is that it sinks.... but i belive some original weapons do so here is hoping :-

I belive yours is V1 or V2 (flat tip transition). If not, they started to fake mold letters now and thats really going to open a whole can of worms.

I'm with Chris_J. Looks alright to me. The sinking test is a good indicator but not conclusive. I also have to say I have never heard/seen of a fake saber with a letter on the hilt. I think you got a winner.
