    Craig sell quality items. And he does his homework. Just not seeing what you're seeing.

    I was about the say the same thing. I can tell the liner is a reproduction though, never had a draw string as the holes are not pulled and the vertical and horizontal streaking is a sign of ageing the leather with stain and a brush. That leads to the pins which do have the outside camo on them but from these pics I am comfortable with both the pins and the camo. The shell is 100% original without a doubt. The chinstrap I would say aged fake because of the liner.

    I would conclude real shell, camo looks ok but would want in hand, liner repro aged, chinstrap repro aged. To messed with to bid on for me but not a full blown fake by any means

    Liner and strap are bad, paint is definitely questionable, shell is original. As with all things - Caveat emptor!
