In my eyes, a 'real' 68000 is manufactured by Motorola but may also include the later versions made by Freescale, i.e. it is an IC with 68000 printed on it manufactured by the owner of the 68k design at that particular time.

For some people, the history behind an item is as important (or even more) than the item itself and they would prefer a battered old original over a shiny brand new, perfect copy.
