OK folks... help me out here. :confused: I've been going to antique & estate auctions for several years with my dad, but mostly dealing in collectibles, glassware, instruments, etc.... just about everything except Hot Wheels. I need some information on how I can tell the difference between a REAL/ORIGINAL Redline, and a reproduction/newer WalMart model. Any info at all will be helpful. Thanks, in advance. :thumbsup:

Which redlines are you referring to?

Sorry I don't have a pic of the other one so I'll throw up one of the greatest redlines.

I'm not talking about any vehicles in particular, but I'm just wondering if there are any markings, date codes, lettering on the bottom of cars, etc. or any way to distinguish between an original and a "fake" redline.

Fireman...I've been collecting Redlines since 1968. In a nutshell...original Redlines were only manufactured in the US or Hong Kong. Period.
