My Oldgas acquired knowledge says fake. On the real ones the two bottom star points will extend down into the text along the bottom.
But, I could be wrong. Let's see what the experts say. Actually Randy, you are one of the experts I thought. And you don't know?

It will be "real" in time, but still a fake. Dave

Check out the "C" in Texaco it looks like a bite taken out of an "O" dead give away for a fake. Notice in Randy's example the correct font doesn't extend downward and is more open.

Randy,

When I saw your post, I said to myself "this is not the Veteran Randy I know". LOL!

Glad you are doing this to educate new collectors.

I wish more & more topics like this would come up.

Thanks,

Hen

BUT it also Educates the Fakers into doing Closer Repops, just a matter of time till they get real close to originals.

The 3 O'clock and 9 O'clock points of the star always point directly to the centers of the white dots. The 5 O'clock and 7 O'clock points always extent into the wording, as mentioned. You'll almost always see these misfits on the fakes.

Ok so thankfully we have Wikipedia so we can figure out who/what Twiggy is if you're less than 50'years old. She was pretty and pretty thin.
