Stare at the font for a few moments on both and you'll clearly see the real one.

If you look at the first picture in the ebay ad, and look real close--there appears to be some pitting in the metal above the "N" in genuine, but it is covered by black color?
Maybe I'm seeing things, but I noticed it right away and wondered how that might have happened? Duh! It was an old can when the paint was applied!

my opinion is a stencil paint job with a round of bb pellets for that sweet vintage patina look.

Some quick observations:
1. All the font is too thick everywhere.
2. The "T" in the center of the graphic "MOTOR" is screwed up.
3. The "Harley Davidson Motor Company Milwaukee Wis." looks like they ran out of room almost because their font was too thick.
and on and on
My vote is: FAKE or HOME MADE FANTASY!

Without actually holding it, it's hard to say real or not. But I do know that there are a different Versions of Harley Black and Orange 1 quart cans. There are Different color oranges and also different style lettering on the cans. There is one version that the letters are much thicker and the other version. So it is possible that these may have variations in them also.

Well if its not real someone is going to get burnt.I don't feel too bad for someone who spends this amount of money without knowing of another example. Hope they know better then us. I don't mean to upset anyone but for the most part Harley guys are easy. The winner might not care if its the real deal or not.

Is someone messing with the seller? Planning on backing out because the can isn't authentic?
