Unusual 52a decal

Is it genuine or is it fake?

I would hesitate to give this its own code, firstly because its an error piece and secondly because if we code it by next week there will be a dozen more on ebay.

Pardon me for disagreeing, M'lud, but we do have a precedent in the form of the 11a with side decals. which has not one but two codes (the difference being decal size).

I now also have a mint and boxed example (bought at no premium) which is the same variation code.
I am therefore convinced that this is a legitimate variation.

Another one!
I think this variation is on a par with the side decal 11a: probably one rogue worker placing the decals incorrectly for several shifts until spoken to by the supervisor.
