Ebay seller uzdecor-com (aka musikman33) from the USA sells a lot of decorative Uzbek items and I believe everything comes directly from Uzbekistan.

These Zanzibar plates appear on a Chinese manufacturer’s website, have registrations that do not exist in Zanzibar and none of them have the laser etched serial number that genuine plates have. Salesman’s samples that presumably came from the plate factory in Tashkent.
Mint genuine plates like these just do not exist from these sort of countries.
Just another dodgy dealer passing off scrap aluminium as the genuine article.
