NOS fuel canisters
« on: April 21, 2020, 11:51:21 PM »
Experts- 
I have these two fuel canisters , both represented as nos.
Are they ?  Obvious difference is the Fomoco stamp is opposite on them,
Thanks in advance for information!

I can't tell because of the low resolution but are the 3 marks above FOMOCO dots or stars?

Dave ,yes the picture is much better. Those are older style reproduction . The genuine canisters had stars not dots. It is a detail that the people reproducing them missed . The current repro has the correct stars but the color is off.
