It is funny (strange) how one can "pick up" some of the subtle tells that original items have....

It seems that after handling a few dozen or so small signs, repops seem to scream at one... Not that I haven't scratched my head and said to myself... I'm not sure about that sign.

And since the internet, so many original Foreign Market signs make there way over here. On those... I'm learning all over again.... Good thing we have so many here that have much more expertise than I....
