yep- these are made in china, along with the stainless/chrome versions, and the larger 74 versions. The black bases are painted, which means the paint scrapes off when you adjust the mirror ! The paddle sections are coated with a different process, so a different finish than the base. Also if you look closely along the crimped edge, the smaller 72-73 versions , you can see a lot of ripples.

The much better repro are the ones that the dealer sells, which i believe our host carries as well. They are now available in left and right versions. An interesting problem with those is the aberration that appears when you look thru the side window glass into the mirror. It is very disconcerting as it is not a smooth image; your eyes play tricks on you. Still these are so much nicer than the asian repros, that I put up with it
