It's your best option, unlikely anyone here will be able to tell if it's a fake or not just by those pictures.

Does it have a colored ring inside the valve fill? Considering how it looks and probably old; I'd side on it being real. That said, it probably leaks and needs a service which is around $100.

Seems the answer is clear. Is it fake, or not? Yes.

I bought a Dupont similar to the one in the pictures several years ago. Dupont told me the only way to know if it was real was to send it in to them and have them check it out. Evidently there are some real good imitations out there.

Good Luck!

p.s., Tom, you aren't that old!!!

For the record, Radu Badea hasn't been back since 15 minutes after he posted this.
