I have what I believe is a Scott 35L6. Given no more information than this image:

...please reply to this two-part question: (1) Do you think this item is genuine, or a replica? (2) What features from the image lead to your conclusion?

Thanks in advance.

See the genuine example here:
1. This is not an original. This looks to match the second reprint noted above but everything is so heavily printed it might be even be a forgery created from a reprint.
2. The original has very fine shading lines and this is far from that.
