PLEASE HELP.... Is one of these a fake? Are they both real?

I bought these two plates from 2 different "well respected" members on here. You can plainly tell there's a difference. I need an unbiased viewpoint. So my brothers... what's up with these 2 plates. I cannot put one out for sale to find out afterwards that it's fake in doing so tarnishing my rep. Your knowledge and time is greatly appreciated.

Bottom one looks wrong to me but I'm not expert. I do believe all Haro's plates had the his name on them.

Thank you for that input... that is what I thought. Just trying to make sure before I complain to the seller.

Both look legit, but different!

Cant really call the 2nd one a fake as it says Haro nowhere on it. Now, if it was advertised as Haro, that's where the problem lies. Otherwise, it's a plate that simply says type 2


Freshour, Mongoose, GT, Dyno, Kuwahara, Free Agent, Schwinn.
Big air to flat. They way we used to do it.

Based on my recollection (fwiw), the bottom plate was a no-name brand made contemporaneously to the Haro plate from a 'Team Cycle' type brand marketed to hardware stores, etc.

Billy is the Bob Haro raised on the back of the one plate? Or smooth?

Bottom looks fake to me all Type 2 plates I have ever owned had the velcro straps the bottom one may have been made by Acme and old but to me not by Haro. Top I say is legit bottom not so much.  IMO

Here's one of those knock offs in package that sold here awhile ago.
