actually, they're not illegal and not really phoney. 
when the mccoy factory burnt down, they sold whatever
they could to whoever would buy--many molds were sold
to robinson ransbottom pottery company (rrpco) and
were used "as is".  

the circle and quill jardinaires with either 
brush/mccoy/nm/nmmcoy/usa/rrpco/robinson ransbottom
roseville, ohio on the bottom is a good example of a
popular mold that was used continuously for almost 50
years by two different companies.  

although they can't really be classified as 'fakes',
it's best to know who made them, as prices vary
accordingly.
