Beware of fake yellow dots on Aero Ektars

For no real reason,  an Aero Ektar with a yellow dot sells for more than one with no dot.

Here is a drilled, counterfeit dot!  Not only is the Testors yellow paint slopped over the edge unlike a real dot, but the depression is incorrectly shaped and poorly centered. A genuine dot is flat, perfectly centered, and shows shallow grooves of the ring engraving tool.

You've been warned.
