Hi,

I want to buy this 1665 but i have a question about this case back.
Good or service case back ?

It's for a 1665 white ( serial number 6675XXX, year 1980).

Hello

Original case backs were engraved.

Service and Bogus casebacks were etched.
I do not have enough experience to tell them apart.

I am suspicious of the sticker hiding it.

I have not seen the issue discussed and would like to know how you corroborate the theory.
