Default Acofind has been selling fakes for 15 years, heads up

Here is yet another obvious reproduction offered by acofind. I used to write him years ago and inform him but he seems to just keep posting them.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/163419571165?ul_noapp=true

Graphics should be much better as in this example:

Heck I think his 1960 Bazooka Mantle is bad as well that he just listed ugh!

You can throw in pretty much all of the signs and posters he is selling too. So, if it is made of paper it most likely is a reproduction or fake.

PS. He also sells or used to sell on eBay under the names "theolestuff" and fourducks".

As the REA points out, it's nearly 4 feet high. Looks just a wee bit short too.

I agree but if you read the REA description closely it mentions the smaller countertop versions I believe.

The difference in clarity with the graphics is a dead give-a-way though.

The price he's asking is a dead giveaway to start. If it's real he'd only be leaving a little bit on the table....

Acofind should have been kicked off ebay long, long ago. I think it comes down to the same answer as always, as to why they are still there. Money. They still make ebay money. Hopefully they have some really bad Karma for their blatant fraud they continually commit.
