Reproduction A reproduction is a copy of an original collectible. A facsimile is a reproduction done to the same scale and appearance as the original. It may be mechanically or hand reproduced using the same or a different method of production. The item may be labeled as a reproduction or represented as an original item and hence a "fake". A reproduction is an item which externally and internally resembles the original article, using broadly similar but not necessarily identical materials and manufacturing techniques to those used to produce the original.
