I just signed up with you. I have a question regarding the purchase I just made of 6 Standard Oil Quart Bottles in a wire rack. How can I tell if they are original bottles or repros?

What did they tell you when you bought it???
Fakes don't look old at all. Easy to tell even for a novice.
The wire rack is a give-away.
