Default Help! Fake GNU Danny Kass?

So I recently bought a board from a person on craigslist. I went into the house to buy it, and in the room this lady had over 15+ snowboards. And you could tell this person was not a snowboarder or collector. The board just seems fishy. First off, it was very cheap and in almost perfect condition. Secondly it looks as if one of the logos is a sticker. Its raised and glossy while the logo on the other end has no edge to it and is a matte finish like the rest of the board. Also the one logo has smooth lines on the outside, while the suspected one looks like it was cut with scissors. The pattern and design looks the same as other boards, but the sticker thing has me confused. Please help! I attached pics.

Yes, I know what year and make it is. It's just the sticker thing makes me to think it could be fake. Have there ever been fake gnu's made?

Does it look like it has Magne-Traction? From that photo it doesn't look like it has serrated edges.

DK is a money loser. If they were going to make a fake one it would be a skate banana. It would have to sell for over 50% during the offseason to make it profit.

I guess it's not impossible, but it seems like a shit ton of effort to go through to make a fake board that's already 5+ years old. It'd be a lot of work to make even a bad fake. I mean, what'd you pay for it? $75? If you paid more than that, then you got ripped off even if it's 100% legit. Snowboard tech has come a long way in the last 5 years.
