The Coke sign is definetely REPO
The Bud sign as well(sold)

He's sold a few this way, same back on all.
Some very convincing some obvious repos
All aged and possibly heavy porcelain

Wouldnt know how to prove otherwise except showing the signs as a group he has sold

its apparent this Bueno Aries antique dealer has some connection to these type of reproductions as he has a few different ones

This guy needs to be turned into ebay. All his feedback is from private ebay users who obviously are in it by bidding and winning his items and leaving positive feedbacks then obviously item is never sold, he is just raising his feedback ratings so he can ripoff bidders.

Shell Green Streak signs on ebay, notice the grommets are wrong on the repro from the Argentinian scumbags.

56chiefstar,
I don't think the bidders for the items sold by wholesalecandyshop are "in on it". This guy keeps the IDs private so that others can't warn them in advance that the items are repops. Note that his feedback count is fairly low for his extended time on eBay and the number of items sold. Also, he only has one negative feedback. I guess most buyers haven't figured out that the items aren't real yet??

It also looks like eBay won't do anything to stop him!!
