Re: Have a look at this armband.
I took a few more of the stamps. There are three for sure on there. It is very dirty, so it is difficult to see if there may be more, or a number or anything else. Should I be looking for something specific?
The stamps bled out and are hard to read on the white, and disappear on the red. I can barely make out letters...and I think I have to cave in and get glasses.
I also shot some more of the stitching on the inside. The white stripe has been hand sewn around the armband. There is red thread holding together the seams in the back on the body of the armband. - Very interesting how they have been looped together.
The red portion is very thick, and must be a lower grade of material. It reminds me of a wool blanket almost, and just as course. I didn't know if putting the calipers on it would mean anything to anyone...it just seems unusually thick.
...and you know, out of all my supposed TR collection, this one I was betting on to be faked some how...lol...I scored this at a huge outdoor antique sale (Christie for those in Southern Ontario) from a cat that wasn't doing so well sales wise, and he practically begged me to take it off his hands for 25 clams
