My Nolan N102 which is 3 months old has the standards sticker - silver
backing, with red printed on the left third. The words "Certified
product" written *up* the left side and 5 silver ticks on the edge of
the red. The rest has black writing saying the standard number, issuer
and (what I assume to be) a serial number. Anything with a different
sticker is a "novelty hat" - I certainly wouldn't wear one. To my
understanding said sticker's been the same since its inception.

Buggered if I know. That's why the MCC of NSW were bitcing about it in
the positioned for safety doc IIRC correctly which of course I may not be

If Australian Road Rider is to be believed, the patch sewn into the
lining is what's legally required; the sticker is simply to make
verification easier.

Don't have the issue in front of me but it was one of the last three or
four, a response from the editor in the letters section regarding those
white stickers vs the tick stickers.
