There is another indicator not obvious from the picture - the text "negative black" printed on the plastic sleeve, yet neither rivet has a trace of black paint. I hope there are no Chinese counterfeiters reading this gathering hints on how to make more convincing looking fakes :-)

Why would a person counterfeit a Nippon Chemicon cap, because of its low monetary value and unpopularity amongst DIYers?

The most common counterfeits are Elna for Audio, Cerafines........
