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. 

Beistle made a vintage version of this that is on the light weight cardboard stock so typical of non-embossed diecuts. This fake was printed on thick cardboard and has a cloudy appearance. These have been peddled by sellers like trappedintheshadow and curiousimp, both of whom have long been on my list of those with whom I choose not to business.
