    Absolute bargain at that price Rory.
    Never seen one without the maker mark on the back for sale however, unmarked packets are more rare I guess or are they as common ?

    Hi Rory,

    Unfortunately, I believe that this is a well known fake packet, so I'm glad you didn't pay much for it.
    As far as I know, the seam should be on the right hand side of the reverse, and the 1939 date font is incorrect.

    But since packets are not my area, just to be on the safe side, don't destroy it until you get some more opinions!

    Regards - Danny

    Anything and everything gets faked Rory. It beggars belief sometimes! !

    Danny is correct. It is a well known fake style which can be found marked or unmarked.

    I shouldn't be surprised, an american selling repo and genuine items, 1944militaria, sounds familiar, wonder if they're related. LOL
