Default Real or fake?

I was watching this auction and figured they were repros. Since the final price was low, was it safe to say they were reproductions? Please post your thoughts and why. I always love to learn what to look for. Thanks again.

ACOFIND is a KNOWN seller of fakes and reproductions. He used to live in Muncie, Indiana. I have been after him for almost five years but eBay will NOT kick him off their site. He has made tens of thousands of dollars over the years selling fake and reproduction items like these.

Three or four years ago, a board member bought a repro baseball poster from him (Bond Bread?). He has also sold repro Mickey Mantle Jello cards, brown Ball canning jars, salesman sample butter churns, Winchester, Harley Davidson, Indian and other advertising signs, Shirley Temple glass pieces and various Native American items.

In the past, he has sold under eBay id's of "theolestuff" and "fourducks". You can go to www.toolhaus.org and look at his (and other sellers) feed back and see that he has NUMEROUS instances of people calling him out for selling fake and repro items.

Living in Indiana, it makes me ill to know that slime like this is making a living ripping people off.

Thanks for the info. Also when the bidders' ids go private I get a little suspicious on the auction.

I have never seen this website (toolhaus.org) before but I can see this can be a very helpful tool in avoiding bad ebay sellers. Thanks for the link!

Over the years I have sold about 8 of these signs. This type of sign is always
11 x 21 with the boarders. Only way they are less is if they are trimmed but at no time were they ever 9 x 17 which is the size of every repro
