Anyone post closeups of a Nicky Hayden replica tank

Bought a tank off ebay which stated original "perfect" Nicky hayden tank. Got the tank today with small dent and signature/AMA decal looks questionable. You can also tell specific areas were touched up and re-clear coated. Can anyone please post some close ups of there signature area so i can maybe determine if this tank is complete Bull?

I know mine was right out of the create when I bought it. Even helped the dealer set the bike up since I knew the dealer. There is no clear coat on the decal. I will get a pic of mine this week for you.

I stand corrected I just shot pics for you and run my fingers over the decal. It is clear coated as you can not feel the thickness of the decal.
It is very funny cause I replaced my upper fairing and the decals on it are not clear coated even the new one from Honda was not clear coated.
