I stated phony in the title just meaning its not a genuine 09SVDB.
To take that one step farther, this appears to me to be a likely 09-S with the designer's initials added.
The "V" is to narrow, its period is to low.
The "D" is completely the shape & its period is to close to the "D".
The "B" is better but not right either, the center cross bar is to straight, both open loops are to open.
Now, the "N" in UNITED would be correct for either the 09SVDB or the 09-S.
Fake/Phony, yes! counterfeit I don't think so, I think its an altered 09-S
your take?
