I bought my used 3458A ref board on eBay about 5 years ago from a seller in CO. It is the genuine article. I can't see how or why anyone would bother to make a really good fake board (complete with Vishay metal foil resistors) with a fake LTZ 1000A and sell it for $99.... If these boards were coming from China, maybe...

He claims that he received many as NOS from a closed assembly plant-you folks would know better than I if that story holds water. He also says that many are purchased when folks upgrade to the 4ppm option.
