Besides the top being removed and the inside looking brand new, the light reflection patterns on this can just didn't look right to me, so I started looking closer. If you "supersize" image #6 you can make out a faint line between the front and back green lines in the center of the can. This faint line is connecting the front and rear lines and shouldn't be there. Maybe I'm just very paranoid now. The seller claims it's original but just beware.

Item number 170311830215

Gary,
I know nothing about cans, or much else for that matter but I have learned you cant always trust a pic, especially after enlarging it. Things just get distorted, light reflects weird, etc.

Hello Gary,
I think now the seller might be parnoid too. I pulled up the auction to look at the pic and now there are 5 pictures and a little white box with a red X where a picture was????

Hello, are there any more comments on this can? I would say it is an original and just wondered if anyone else thinks it is a repo? With technology, it is hard to tell these days...

Thanks!

Ryan
