I have one genuine Hetchins twin plate fork crown, this item is extremely rare, I looked for over 2 years before finding any this one is surplus, one of you will be lucky. Please look at the pictures, the ornamentation is added to the basic crown whilst the fork is assembled, it should be possible to source these from a lug cutter.
The fork blades needed to fit this crown are the round type preferred by Hetchins
