I just received a batch of marriage certificates from a Register Office in the S West and they really do look like copies of the originals Not A4 size but as they were 50 years ago wide and narrow and look so fresh they could have been written and signed yesterday. On the other hand a few Birth Certs that are type-written on A4 and everything about them is in Black.
