oy ve, again, if a rubber stamp was used and the ink smeared, it would leave stains....also, fake ludlows that have been around for a long time eventually wear out and can accumulate stains.  Dave Gross found a fake ludlow in his collection he had since the early 1990's and he is not even sure where he got it.  Maybe I am the first to tell you this but it is pretty obvious there are numerous sources of fake ludlows in our hobby.  Most of the fakes seem to be resticks of series two ludlow backs with series 1 titles since series 1 brings more $$.

Getting back on on topic here, if the ludlows of this thread are from a source who had these from the 1970s, then it is merely coincidence that a random pair of titles had nearly indentical ludlow backings. 



Wow, I honestly wouldn't have guessed faking Luds would go back into the early 90's.  I didn't know they were a big deal 20 years or so ago.

Well, I can guarantee you that faking wacky packages wax packs goes back at least to the late '90's, because the majority
of a run of packs I got in 2001 were fake.

Am I missing something?  Based upon the specific back scans that were included in post #5, the backs don't look identical to me.
I pointed out in one of the messages that TWO OF THEM are almost identifcal and are off by the smallest shift.  This was before this thread detoured off into Texas. 

I found it remarkable that a seller would randomly sell two that were so close in backing.  I reviewed greg's series 1 ludlow back page and found no pair that were such a close match as two of the ones offered here.  It also was odd that when I asked about the source, first answer made it sound like a random trade with a sports card dealer for hockey cards and then the next response said they came from someone who was a lifelong collector of wackys. 

I dare anyone to take a pile of ludlows and pull a pair who have backs that are off by barely a centimeter.  Possible yes, statistically likely no, hence I asked the questions.

I had a terrible time remembering how the heck I found the ludlow scans.
