A clever copiest would make just one or two and place them carefully.

It's an obvious and natural assumption-although hasty- that good copies are all coming from East Java.
East Javanese glassworkers make too many multiples to pass copies dishonestly.

If there are persons who can reveal this ruse, it is unlikely that they would make their presence known.

We all get burned once in awhile.
