I heard of fake Heroes, but decided to give it a try. Bought one jumbo Hero 616 on eBay for some $5 shipped. It came in a sealed single blister pack reading "Doctor" with a holographic label. I do not know whether it was real or fake. What I do know is that it was garbage and went to trash immediately. Even a part of plastic section FADED. Terrible nib. Poorly made cap. That pen had nothing in common with a good similar Hero pen I used to enjoy many years ago.
I won't buy any Hero 616 anymore.
