|Spotting a FAKE label|

The text is generally thicker than an original HP label.
You will notice the text "US Values Chosen" at the footnote at the bottom. The small cross to the left of US points to the between the two '4's, in the conversion above, on the fake label.
On an original label, it points just to the left side of the '8'.
Also, the 'U' in "Made in USA", is directly below the '=' sign on an original label. On the fake, the 'S' is below the '=' and slightly to the left.
On the original Singapore model the 'G' in SINGAPORE is very slightly to the left of the '=' key.
So, the label, fortunately is poorly made. (see photo)
If you do find that he has sold you a FAKE label on a calculator, post it here so others will be warned.
NOTE: I show a USA version label and a SINGAPORE label but the comparrisons were made against USA versions as well so the discrepancy is not because two different types of labels are shown. That was just to show the alignment of the Singapore version as well.
