I have an early Italian made 3V that has "Alberto Masi" on it. Not to start a fight here or even an argument, but putting a "Faliero Masi" signature decal on an American made 3V doesn't surprise me. I don't believe any of the early Italian built 3V had "Faliero Masi" signature decals on them however, I'd bet they were all "Alberto Masi".

Anyone else have an Italian built 3V?
