    Mate, no amount of squinting is going to show any detail with these pictures. You'll have to do better.

    Everything you see is fake. The shell - the rolled rim is too flat and the maker mark is not correct; the liner - wrong leather, wrong stitching, wrong rubber; the straps - leather, stitching, snaps wrong; the paint - wrong color and texture. All fake.

    Cheers,
    Terry

    Awesome, thanks for that Terry. I was pretty sure the liner was dodgy but thought the shell looked pretty good (without any "proper" research)!

    Regards,
