    This is an item of insignia which has been well reproduced for many years and catches a lot of collectors out.

    However, it is one which need not fool you if you study this original example from my collection.

    Here we see the full length original cuff title.

      It is 100% original. A "textbook" example.

      Ade could you please tell me what would a normal price be for such thing? I found this one for GBP175. It seems original to me but i'm not an expert so i thought to ask you

      It is original, but the price, for me, is far too high.

      Cheers, Ade.
