I came across a Lion license plate topper (see the attached images) on ebay and jumped on it this evening. I won the auction but I have not paid for it yet. Before bidding, I had done a quick google of OG and found this topper below which initially lead me to think the ebay topper was real.

I did a quick comparison before the auction ended and determied the details looked right. The fonts matched. The "O" was wide and pill shaped. Colors matched. So I jumped in before the auction ended.

After the auction ended I finished looking OG over and found these:

Now that I have time to really compare the attached topper to these other ones, I'm concerned mine may be a fake. Plus it looks as though this seller has sold several other questionable items. Can anyone confirm whether the images attached are of a real topper or not?



I am looking for a real one. If this one is fake and someone has one for sale, would you please contact me?

I told the seller I didn't think this topper was original and asked him to guarantee it was. After a lengthy lecture about "old" "Vintage" items and skirting the word "original", he agreed to cancel the auction. I hope to be able to leave a negative feed back with warning to others.
