Fake and sample number (licence) plate photos

665-Ebay jbeerd carplatespro Colombia Mexico USA diplomatic consular fake replica number license plates

In November 2017 Ebay seller carplatespro and jbeerd (both the same person) from Moscow in Russia was trying to sell these replica Colombian diplomatic, Mexican diplomatic and various US consular plates. He does not say how many copies of each he has but he usually has many of each.

Do you really want in your collection a fake plate that is not only wrong but that many other people also have? Why not just make a drawing of the plate on a piece of cardboard of have a picture printed on card from the www of a real plate and put that in your collection. Much cheaper and better than a fake plate.

As usual with replicas, none of his plates is correct. Several have the slots or holes wrong, some have the blanks pressed wrong, all have the printing slightly off so the registration is actually in the wrong place against the printing and one is copied from a drawing so may not actually be correct at all. The other ones have all been copied from photos of genuine plates on the www.

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.
