That's a definite repro sticker. The paper is extremely white and firmly attached, yet the print shows a lot of wear. More importantly however, the print is clearly of poor quality, with a few errors thrown in for bad measure (the central 'circles' on the vertical rectangle should not have horizontal black bars on them, for example).

Here's what a real sticker should look like:

Hope that helps :-)

It would be more helpful to others if you left the pics up so people know what to look out for

I agree, was reading this and it took a while for me to realise that the “fake” picture had been removed.
Would be good to have a comparison.

Such a shame about this kind of thing.

Makes you wonder how many people out there have been conned, and have absolutely no idea that the rare/ valuable item sitting in their display is not real.
