Fake and sample number (licence) plate photos

648-Ebay jbeerd US consul China Taiwan fake replica number license plates

In October 2017 Ebay seller jbeerd (aka carplatespro) from Moscow in Russia was trying to sell these replica US Florida Consul, US Illinois Consul, Chinese diplomatic and Taiwan diplomatic license plates. It is normal for him to have many copies of each plate with the same number. Do you really want a plate in your collection that you know is fake and that there are plenty of other people with the same fake plate as you?

As is usual with his plates all of them have something wrong with them but you have to compare very carefully with a photo of a genuine plate. There are enough photos available on the www though to be able to do this.

The big problem is going to come later when some of these plates get into the market. From a photo during a sale or trade it could be difficult to tell if the plate or plates are genuine or not.

This just makes everything difficult for everyone. Reproductions are very bad for the hobby and if you care about the future of the hobby, it is better you do not buy reproductions, especially poor quality ones like this seller makes.
