Just when you thought it was safe to buy inserts!  Someone (either NSS employees or the usual fake sellers in the Hall of Shame) printed many unathorized bootlegs of the “international” (with no ratings box) Jaws insert poster, possibly using the original printing plate. Fortunately, they can be easily distinguished from originals because they are slightly cropped at the bottom.  On originals you can clearly see more bubbles forming at the bottom just to the right of the shark.  This bubble is missing on the fake bootleg.
