    nope, if I was about to copy any bayo and accessories related to Britain &CO I would start by S. African items, as they are really scare. About to well made, I know a guy in Ukraine he even uses old style linen string to sew the copy frogs he made.

    any way I personally don't believe that a leather item that is appr. 100 years old can be in such condition, even if it was kept with no day light in constant 20 C degree

    Sorry ph3s, but you're wrong on this. Condition of items is no guide to their authenticity, a point which has been made hundreds of times on this forum. I have original items from the 1882 Pattern equipment that are in good wearable/useable condition.
