LEGO logo on part

As noted in this question, there are very few parts that do not have the LEGO logo included during manufacture. But which parts are those? Is there any semi-exhaustive list? Does bricklink note this sort of thing anywhere?

I'm mostly curious from the perspective of someone who would be looking through bulk LEGO and trying to figure out whether they got real LEGO or clones. Finding the logo is usually so reassuring. I'm not worried about really ancient rare parts, but if you want to be that thorough don't let me discourage you. Either way, some sort of list of parts that somebody should expect to be legitimate LEGO, but not worry about the lack of a logo, would be great.

I certainly don't have a list, but I came across Technic, Steering Arm with 4 Ball Joints with Black Wheel Hub (x872 / x873) part several times. I heard stories of Bricklink sellers being accused of shipping knock-off copy of this part (since it is a little pricey) due to absence of LEGO logo, despite them being legit items.

Another example is this watering can. The green one we have is from Fabuland. In fact several other Fabuland parts here also lack the logo - this bench for example. I wonder if in the 70s/early 80s, when Fabuland was designed, Lego were less concerned about putting their name on every last part.

Other parts I've seen without a logo tend to have some of the following features:

  • no or hollow studs on top
  • curved
  • small
  • translucent

This electric light bulb cover ticks all of those boxes

  • Could you specify which watering can you are talking about? URL leads to list of multiple items. The jug I have (in Trans-Light Blue) does have LEGO logo. It might be present due to part being used years later than it appeared in Fabuland sets. Does any of Fabuland parts you've mentioned have "Fabuland" text on them? – Alex Jul 22 at 15:34
  • @Alex I've fixed the link. I don't recall anything marked Fabuland on the part. My daughter inherited her Fabuland from her mum, and they weren't new when she got them. Because of her age they are likely to be rather early sets. You're right; the jug does have a logo so I've fixed that too. I haven't checked everything but spot-checking a few Fabuland parts shows Lego logos on most, and no Fabuland logs - but then very few parts were exclusively Fabuland – Chris H Jul 22 at 17:42

Are both of these fences made by Lego?
This is another example. This fence piece came in logo and non-logo versions in the 1970's.

The Plant, Tree Palm Top part has had revisions where it was not marked with the LEGO logo, as we have learned in this QA thread.

    Could you specify exact items? – Alex Jul 22 at 15:38

    You're wrong, almost all of these types of parts you mentioned are in my inventory and they have the Lego logo hidden on them. Just because they don't have studs doesn't mean that they're unable to put their logo. – mindstormsboi Jul 23 at 9:48
