W551 Strip Card reprints... April 30 2009 at 3:16 PM
I am being offered some two card panels of these cards. I assume that someone cut up the original 10 card strip. The seller is an an out of town antique shop. They do not have a scanner.
Are there fake W551's out there? If so, are they individuals or in panel/strip form?
Any help or photos of what to look for would be appreciated.

Steve is correct. There are in fact quite a few fakes out there. I don't have any scans to show though...

They're not bad reprints either........... April 30 2009, 4:00 PM
I think the stock is a little glossier but VERY close if I remember correctly. One reason I never fool with the things unless they come up from someone very reliable or with a big batch of stuff otherwise new to the market...........
