Default TTE front lip - REAL or FAKE - how to tell?

What's up CL...I'm buying a TTE lip tomorrow. Supposedly it's authentic. Other than the obvious badge how could one tell an authentic vs replica?

Please help. Don't want to pay $$ for replica.

pretty easy to tell the real from the fake.

fake has no stamps of any kind.

beat you to it!

on a serious note though when theres a demand, they supply.

Too bad TTE only ships now, if they were still in business in the U.S., they'd be making BANK!! (and the damn lip wouldn't cost so much)
