You are correct. I have seen that engraving on fake Balfour and JR Gaunt wings here on the west coast.
This is the best photo I have of the back of these Technical Observer wings. You can see the "large hallmark" LGB Sterling that is not typical of an authentic wing. Note the drop-in catch. I would avoid any Balfour wings with this large marking.

About 10 years ago, there was a collector who was selling his stuff at local gun shows. Most of what he had was good, but he had several wings with the large markings. I haven't seen any since. He had this style of TO wing, with the solid O, as well as the type with the open O.

It's at one of those "list it for you" sellers, I have determined they must be great place to dump your fakes especially, if you don't want anyone to know the real seller!!
