|Disappointments abound with copies|

More often I hear the following:
From experienced collectors: "Crap, this is a copy!"
From inexperienced collectors: "Crap, this is a copy?"
From buyers who might some day become collectors: "Crap, how do I tell the difference between between the originals and new copies?"
So maybe the copies are not ENTIRELY crap, but personally I would prefer that I not have to spend time & money buying and studying them so I can be sure not to buy them in the future.
In my experience, hardly any copies are sold as copies. That really is the crux of the issue.
