There are some unconventional shots out there so that observation in itself is not enough to identify it as a fake, but taken with eveything else it's the clincher.
It just looks WRONG. First -it's acid-etched, which is unusual for anything but a very old pre-pro, but the faker's preferred medium.
Second - the lady is highly detailed but the rest looks like it was put together by a kid in grade school. The letters are too inconsistent and clunky.
Third, the top line was fumbled in a classic beginner's way.
To me, it looks like someone put together a collection of different element, some home-made, others from a mass-produced stencil.
Then there's the final taunt - "What's It"?! It's a fake, that's what it is.
The seller said he found it in an antque mall in Dallas.
