I concur - Just looks like a minty vintage sticker

Shitting hell - I honestly though it looked good - sorry about that mate

Normally the repro stickers for these things are pretty obvious. It just goes to show what sort of shit is out there now

No problem guys,I thought the thing was legit,it just looked too white,thats what worried me.Been having a chat with Steve at UKG and he says these are getting harder to spot.Apart from the size difference(as pointed out in the pics)the texture is a lot more smoother.Its more noticable on the back!!!

The cut of the sticker appears to be a giveaway as well.

Did Steve give you any information on the origin of these stickers at all? It does look incredibly good to be reproduction (although these days it seems exact replicas are now possible)

It would be cool for the rest of us to know where these repros are coming from, cross reference them against existing variants etc so all information would be really helpful as that one just looks perfect to me!

Bluesnagman - I am sure he has been flagged up before as a well known scammer

I makes me so angry that they are only doing this for profit yet can ruin the hobby for all of us
