    I have not seen this color before either. Sunlight will bleach out insignia but this looks consistent from front to back. I'm guessing it is just washed out. It could be a repro with an incorrect backing color but the basic construction looks correct. How thick is the wool backing? NH

    Hi Nick, it does not give me a good feeling and simply from an esthetic point of view, I personally, would pass on it.

    Cheers, Ade.
