    Never seen one like this before in bullion. I am not crazy about it, and would pass on it if offered to me.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I suspect that because it looks too new to be that old -folks have stated it's a repro.

    If it were mine, I would carefully peel off the backing cloth just enough to reveal how the bullion embroidery was performed. If it looks like the Pakistani "hand made" patches -then it is probably fake.

    If you do this, post pics...
