OK, I'll go first.  I haven't owned/been interested in a SC since the original Futura, so about as far from an expert as you can get, but that "circle T"  on the face looks fishy to me.  Maybe its just the lighting or worn paintfill?

Plus, I don't have any "legit" pics to compare to, but I don't think I've ever seen a pic of a legit one with a white spot right on the "Rat's" butthole?

There are some REALLY good fake rats on the market. If you’re at all concerned or the price is too good, I’d suggest you move along.

This one has the sole mill marks that the fakes lack and the bombs appear to be the right size and spacing. The ct on the face looks a little wonky but the rest looks ok. If someone were to purchase I wouldn’t rule out a bait and switch though...

I appreciate all the feedback! Thank you. It is a good price. And not pictured, but adding to the caution- No COA and they claim it has been reshafted so there is no CT shaft or serial#

I just would not buy a Rat from anyone that isnít a trusted collector or directly from the gallery. Like others have said the fakes have gotten wayyyy too good.

Hard to tell from the pics but appears to be casting in the cavity, not milling.

If those are real pics I think it's 100% real. But it looks like someone did a paint fill job to the sole of the putter. That's why the letters are thicker, they put in more paint than the original (see pics).

The back and face look so legit I don't see how it could be fake unless it's an incredible fake. The weights might be fake though.

Searching through the SC COAs there are only 8 Super Rat I's listed and none of them have red fill on the backside.

Anyone know if this list is all inclusive? I would assume any Super rat or CT that he made and sold for a few bucks would be on there?

See my post above. I think someone did the paint fill job themselves.

So is the SC COA search all inclusive? The only one it could match is A036302 which has a welded neck

Toe and heel bumpers on the back flange are wrong, and curve on sole is incorrect.  Milled slot on neck is also wrong.

NOT an expert, but that caught my eye also.  The circle T looks a bit off as well.
