Looks to me, that a "paper or vinyl" sleeve was placed on the "Tiopet, hi-Sky and Purity" cans. And on the "hi-Sky" can; it looks as if they placed the sleeve on "up side down"...

All 3 fake quarts are now listed as being reproduction decals. It could be an ebay dealer just selling them for someone who is making them up. I don't know who is creating them unless these are some of the ones the late Neil Wentworth made a few years back and are still circulating or maybe a copycat, lol. Cheers, Don.

I'm just glad to note that they have no bids on them. No profit = Less of this junk will be made.
