Here we go again... once more, a would-be antique canoe expert with self-professed knowledge of what an authentic Kennebec Canoe Co. sample looks like, posts another of the recently-imported Chinese toys as the real thing, claiming it to be "antique" and made by Kennebec, even though the stencilling on the side is visibly recent, and not even being close to the correct font. see: https://www.ebay.com/itm/362525888452 The seller's description reads: "This is a rare and unusual antique Salesman Sample Canoe model from the Kennebec Canoe Company out of Waterville Maine. It measures 27.5 inches in length, 4.75 inches wide, 2 inches in height. It is in excellent condition. The canoe is antique, i believe the lettering is not original to the canoe and is probably more recent. The canoe is in excellent condition. It is hand made of excellent quality." I have written the seller to advise that this information is completely bogus, that the item is a recent Chinese import, that the posted offer could be considered fraudulent, and suggested the listing be taken down. We'll see.
