I just looked. he does NOT say that they're clearly marked as facsimiles.

Those of us who have been in the game for some time will be able to 
tell they're not originals, of course, just by the feel of the paper. 
I do worry about newer collectors being fooled by them.

As to the morality of it, I'll leave that to the theologians in the group.
