Hamann wheels?

I want to buy a set of 18" Hamann wheels from someone and I was wondering how I would be able to tell if they are authentic or replicas? Is Hamann an expensive wheel brand? Do they make replicas of it and are they alot worse quality than authentic? The wheels in question are 2 piece 18" Hamann Anniversary wheels (anyone have part numbers?)

At least with the HM2s, HAMANN stamped between the outside spokes. On the back side, should say DESIGN HAMANN GERMANY, MADE IN ITALY. Occasionally it will say MADE BY OZ. The centercaps will be 62mm and not fit **** except OG Hamann caps (expensive) or OZ caps. They will be heavy as ****.

They are super expensive online, since most of them aren't made anymore but since they are heavy and not that popular anymore, you can usually get a good deal from private parties.

Don't buy reps is my general rule.
