For model Fake, Audion Detector and Amplifier 14T (not from De Forest), Faelschung, fake, falsi, fakes, Fälschung:
Alan Douglas has informed me (Ernst Erb) about the following:
The nameplate appears new.
The small plate doesn't appear in catalogs until 1915.
The hardware doesn't match: some is nickel, some brass.
There appear to be no input or output connections.

The engraving is unlikely. The "de forest" script wasn't used on panels until 1922 and the term "one step" wasn't used until 1919. Nothing like it ever appeared in De Forest catalogs, nor did De Forest ever use gooseneck lamp fixtures..

Notes

Audion Detector and One Step Amplifier. No Tuner included. Not from DeForest (De Forest).
This later work of a craftsman or collector is an interesting looking piece for a less serious collector and it is very unusual. But it becomes dangerous for the owner when he/she is selling it as a deForest set, because it has not much to do with deForest. It can be called a fake. It is probably not even a replica ... and should be specially engraved as what it is ...

We know that there are many fakes around from that early time. Many of them have been done by Phil Weingarten of New York City (deceased for a number of years now), but this one is not entirely typical of Phil's work, but he did have an engraving machine and liked to put one-line legends on his stuff. And it was well within his capacity and his stock of old components. All these sets can result in unjust sellings and should be well marked (engraved). We actually show quite a number of replicas and fakes under such terms (simple model search). Replica show mostly models which are without doubt a replica, but "fake" show the problematic stuff. I'm glad we have this one and I hope more American members (or guests) will show us more! This will be duplicated there.
