    sorry that was not my intension , I am just learning to get around on here. I was looking at it like maybe I can bring some good fresh stuff for the collectors. I can just assume the dealer stuff is good and advertise as such but that don't sit well with me. I am a knife guy and don't know anything about cloth items.

    Yes, the rivet is a key component. I have (I think) the exact same one (maker and size). If I remember correctly, these mint unissued versions were from what was called the "bee hive" hoard (yes, hundreds found inside bee hives). Whether this is true or not I can not confirm
    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Looks pretty good to me , but I'd wait on more opinions .
    If it's good you should considering selling it here .

    Here are some quick snaps of mine. Lighting was not ideal but enough for you to compare.

    I couldn't expand your photos enough so look at mine (double click, but I had to reduce the file size as my server is really really slow right, probably everyone is using the wifi) and compare the stitching (especially the inside top seam), the rivets (mine are poorly crimped), outside grommets, eagle and cockade as well as the font.

    I thought mine was a size 56 but it is teeny tiny side 53. Didn't even fit my son when he was 9!!!

    But yours looks good to me. If this is a fake, it has me fooled.
