They look the same from the front............I doubt you could tell if it was a repro once it was mounted in the dash.

The vast majority of the available panels seem to be repros. Patina can be faked, but if it has patina it's not likely it's a repro. Avoid spending extra money for an "original" panel if it's sight unseen though.
