    Hi K, not my area but definitely appears to be a repro. Weave of fabric too new. Need better magnification of back. Put it under black light, if it glows, you'll know for sure.

    It's not suppose to glow if it is TR era. But that, in itself, does not mean it is authentic TR era. Sorry, all I can say, in my opinion it is a repro. Hopefully this will update the thread and somebody that has more knowledge than I will give you a second opinion. I've seen alot of these but have never done any research on them.

    Take care,
    Jay

    Here is one from my collection. This was brought home by a Royal Navy Veteran. Note the construction, edge and joint stitching and more importantly the shape of the eagles etc. Take a close look at the colour of the joint stitch. If you can find one the same as this, it will be good. Look overall how crude the print is.

    Cheers, Ade.
