    The grey canvas one, at first glance only, does not look too bad. BUT upon looking closer, note how limp looking it is and how the canvas is badly stitched and rucked up around the pads.

    Cheers, Ade.
    In any case, the buttons are postwar .

    Reproductions is generous... I have never seen them sold as such unless you happen to "know someone" Also, I am not saying the Ade shows is fake. The details are not clear enough to make a call. At least not for me. The one in my link is as stated, 100% counterfeit. I will photo the snaps so you can see how they compare to the one posted for review.

    Dom... I assume you refer to the "Moskva" marked button?
