Fake Air Speed quart can- what do you think - Fri May 15 2015 05:59 AM

The quart can is on eBay. Im pretty sure it is fake, given computer generated lettering and the funky looking seam. I am very good friends with the seller, who I have never known to sell fake stuff.
I want to let him know that his can is not real, but want to be sure myself.. Any opinions?????

I think it is a copy , yellow is a little off and picture is not as clear as original. Looks like people are bidding on it thinking it is real, Have him look inside, see if there is any oil residue.

Luke, I saw that on ebay as well... I believe it to be fake for the same reasons. the bottom text looks very suspect. and it looks as though the seam is incorrect. bad pictures to boot

Could someone post the suspect can and a known original for comparison. Always searching for new info and have started buying a few cans after 30+ years of saying no to them. Can looks good until I see the points you guys are making. Would just like to see them both together.

Here is an original that I had. The pictures of the one listed are a dead give away that it's a fake especially at the seam.

Notice the one I had also says reconditioned above the word motor oil.

Randy, Is the can above real or not? When you say model can I think repo. Strike that. This is the one from ebay.
