Default Re: Handy Dan Copy?

All the pictures of these that I have seen are marked. From what I have found on line, these were made in the late 1980s, not long before BSR closed. It seems strange that someone would go to the trouble of copying it at that late date, but who knows. The casting quality is just fair. There are a lot of minor flaws, flashing on the edge of the pan and the hanging hole. What looks like grind marks on the back. That would lead me to think its a reproduction, but the pics I've seen on line show the same type of defects on the real ones. I got it cheap, and it is a bit different.
