Fake, IMO sorry. Stewy
Possibly a post war Souval. But hardware's not replaced. A bit of pitting too. Stewy
Poor looking cupola too. Stewy
I agree, it's a complete fake IMO, and not even a left over war time production piece that Souval continued to use with various rear set ups up until the late 50's early 60's and then recommenced production (possibly) using the original dies.

We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.
