Ok, I took it off and there was a tab underneath.  What do you think, fake or real?  I can't tell.

You went too far with the close-up klrman. A bit more angled perspective and much better illumination helps too.

This picture is from HKJ's review of the NCR18650B:

 

 

Yours looks genuine, at least as far as I can tell with such image.

 

Cheers Smile

P.S.: now just file the nickel tab remnants from the top with a grinding bit equipped rotary tool and you're done.

Based on your image above, mine looks exactly the same, so not a fake then.   Thanks for all your help in this Barkuti
