Yes, the TM is a little off, so is the etch.

And, the price is ridiculous.

I did see this myself & the mark looked off for a number of but reasons. The asking price got my attention to.

Gentlemen,

these fake stamped logos are relatively easy to define. The letters was not
stamped in a single line, but have a double line as a contour.
Below a picture with an original logo for comparison.

Regards,
Oleg.

I only wanted to show the difference between original and fake in a direct comparison.
For the fakers is an original logo by Eickhorn certainly not rare.

Cheers, Oleg.

Indeed not rare but nevertheless incorrect.....
One must be grateful for small inaccuracies.

Wow. Just looked at it. Amazing.
Note that it's coming from Czech Republic.
The fakes from the East are nicer than the originals.

Thanks for the reference posting. I'll be saving this as a pdf.

P.S. 50th posting in only 7 years!
