I got this in a collection and it looks different to the one I already have. The white symbols don't look the same. Is it me?

The emblems look 'normal' to me. Have you got any pics of your other example?

OK seriously,

There are TFPs with fat emblems (Ledy), AT-AT emblems (some PBP), bigger emblems (Meccano?).

Maybe other emblems as well?

I don't see much differences between the two emblems, but I must say I didn't drink coffee yet.

Here are comparison pics for different emblems. Maybe they help.

Thanks for the pics. I see both in there. That's good to know. I was hoping mine wasnt some sort of work done by someone else. Smile. Thanks for the help! This new one will now stay in my personal collection

i am inclined to say that this might be paint overspray that bleeded inwards thus making the logo seem thicker. Like when painting with watercolors and you put too much water on your bursh and put it on the canvas and it spreads more than intended.

but i might be wrong too....
