The unmarked copies were likely made with no malice, just as a way to get
more Audions for those that need them for displays, or for even operating
some of the old equipment. But, as we see, the decision to not mark them
has bitten some folks in the butt.

Luckily, I don't need any Audions. Or PDP-8 skins. Need a scope for the
LINC-8, though. I wonder how hard it would be to fabricate one of those...
