    Would it help if it didn't glow whatsoever under a UV light? (just tested it)

    UV light is part of the process to determine/investigate authenticity, it is unfortunate that a lot of things copied today are being constructed as they were back when they were originally made, even medal ribbons are made that dont glow in UV light ! it just means a means to determine if an item is made of man made fibres. Prost ! Steve.
