How do I determine the difference between NOS and reproduction sill plates?

With the quality of the newest reproductions I would guess the only way to tell is the NOS don't look as new. :)

As implied by Rockne10, it depends on which reproductions you are comparing NOS with. The earlier reproductions, a couple of iterations, did not have the proper curve and had printed, not embossed, "dots". The latest reproductions are faithful to originals/NOS.

When I sold my last NOS one, UPS destroyed it on the way to the new owner.

I used the S.I. repops and they look pretty close. Like Gary and Brad suggest, better than NOS.
