Fakes, etc.

I'll begin populating this page with photos of reproductions, fakes and fantasy items as I see them listed on eBay, Etsy and other such sites. Hopefully, collectors will refer to this page to minimize the occasions reproductions, fakes and fantasy items are unknowingly purchased. If you see something on this page that was sold to you purporting to be a vintage item, immediately send it back for a full refund. 

Here are five of the eight JOL designs that have plagued the hobby since they were imported from Germany ~1995. Items from this faux set have fooled many collectors. Don't be one of them. The size and subtle design details immediately differentiate these from the rarely seen authentic items. Although they were imported from Germany, they were all made during or after ~1995.
