(Merch) Authentic Cel?

Howdy! I made an account here hoping to get some advice. I've been trying to decide if these production cels are authentic. I've never bought any type of animation cel and I could use a little guidance. I'm a big fan of animator Mitsuo Iso, so I was hoping to find a legit cel from the fight between Asuka and the Mass Produced Evas.

I've done some research and I know finding cels from the show is next to impossible, but can the same be said for EoE?

This ebay seller is selling a couple cels from the scene, but I could really use some outside opinions. Has anyone bought stuff from this seller? What sort of thing should I be looking for that could indicate whether this is authentic or not? It seems like each frame # above is noticeably different, should that be a concern? And if there are any good questions I could shoot the seller please lemme know.

This last site was a recommendation I went to on a whim but they have some pretty neat cels. I've never heard of "Asylum Anime" and I can't find a lot of reviews from them. I really love this frame despite the obvious wear it has. Any thoughts?

I'd really appreciate any help!! I really want to get my grubby little hands on some legit Eva shit, it would mean a lot to me.

I can't tell you if the cells are the real thing but I have brought trading cards, game cards and special cards from this e-bay seller and they were all the real deal. ^_^

found an old Eva thread from the forum here and Eva monkey it might be useful as well,

Alright, at least somebody knows em! Thanks for letting me know, it does make me feel quite a bit better.

I took a look at the Eva Monkey post a bit ago and it's basically where I got most of my information from, but that Eva thread is new to me, thanks for sending it!!

I've bought from Asylum Anime before. The Asuka cell I bought back in May came from their booth at Animazement. I laid eyes on the cel pictured in their link you posted, and decided that $400 had to be my cutoff point that weekend.

The ebay link looks legit as well, but that's just judging from the online picture. Can't be sure.

Noticed that the ebay seller syuju017 and Anime Asylum have cels from the same scene, at 2 different price points:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ayanami-Rei-Mi ... 2707124799 - $195; actually a dual layer (Rei and Misato)
https://asylum-anime.com/store/index.ph ... e-cel.html - $300; also looks like a dual layer too, could be stuck.

Also, syuju017 is selling this cel for $100. I have one from the same sequence (http://coldsteel.rubberslug.com/gallery ... mID=393187) that I picked up in Japan for ¥8,000, to provide a cost comparison.
