Original or reproduction Silver Fox Beer sign?

What are your thoughts about this sign?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-SILVER ... Swxw5eET~n

I think it is a reproduction but if it is, it will be the first reproduction sign I have ever seen from Fox Deluxe. The grommets seem suspicious.

Focus: Cones and flats from Michigan, South Bend, and Fort Wayne. Foreign cans only if I bought them myself in the country of origin.

Repro or fantasy piece I guarantee it.

Look at the seller's other auctions - 4 pages of 'minty' signs - all of which I would assume to be of modern manufacture.....

Sellers description says:

The estate sale that we purchased these signs from stated that these signs have been hung up in his collection for between 5 and 40 years making all of the items listed vintage. Please do your own research as vintage does not necessarily mean original.

Whenever a seller starts playing with words and explicitly leaves themselves loopholes and outs, multiple red flags go up. At least to me they do.

Repro. An original sign would not have the grommets in the holes.

Not true

The Silver Fox is definitely a repro
