Default Frame Spec Decal

I have never seen this recent pic up decal before. Can anybody enlighten me as to when they were first used and on which models please ?

If it's real, I'd say it's Serotta-era.

Hummmm...The design looks like it could be NY era but to be honest the actual decal ( purportedly made in the US) looks kinda home made. Wondering if i got spoofed

Did Gil sell it to you? It has his odd serifed font in CITY CYCLES. Slightly different from the Velocals font and different still from the SSInk restoration decals.

I dont know who originally supplied it, if not FCC. The German seller told me he sourced it from the US. I know Gil’s decals are fantastic. Its a pretty looking decal but not Gil quality. I have just never seen it before.

Any luck on authenticating? That's an interesting, curious piece.
