    Hi everyone,
    I know these are very rare but this one looks pretty well made and has some age to it. What do you all think? Thanks.

    It stands a chance.

    But these were non regulation.

    Would I buy one? Possibly not, unless it was very cheap or with rock solid provenance.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hello Stgw.
    it looks convincing enough but what would stop me adding this one to my collection is the variation of thread colour on the underside.
    One patch seems to have black under thread rather than the pale colour that is on the rest of the title.
    Just a bit too amateurish for me

    I was just wondering that myself,Doug. It would mean that it's either been repaired or it's a fake to begin with. I would not want to bother with it.

    Hi, I do not like this piece either. One palm tree looks like it sits quite a bit lower than the other, the piping looks different from top to bottom, the back is unlike any Ive seen on authentic pieces of the same. Just too many red flags.
