Help distinguish real Lego from fake

Help distinguish real Lego from fake.  I have parts 3003941: Flat Tile 1X1, etc.  without numbers and Lego logo.  Could this have been before 1995?  I'm trying to put together my first set, 6614-1: Launch Evac 1, which I received on one lucky day back in 1995, but a lot of details are lost, besides, parts of the original Lego have been mixed with analogs.

    Clear photos of the elements in question would be a massive help.

    From what you've said it sounds legit to me!

    Fakes, for sure.

    The 1x1 plates and 1x1 round plates would say LEGO on the studs if legit.  The visor wouldn't have the ring or circle in the center.  The 1x1 tiles can be a little harder to tell legitimate from fakes.  But nearly everything from the 90s to the present should say ©LEGO underneath along with a parts number.   In this case, 3070.  As Huw said, these are fake.
    In addition to missing the logos and id numbers, the texture of these transparent pieces looks wrong.  They are too grainy or granular. 
    Do pieces exist without logos and id numbers?  Yes.  But they are older and you are unlikely to have encountered them unless you're parents had Lego bricks as kids or you had a much older sibling.
