    Looks like a reproduction round bottom fake decal. I also do not like the liner. I'd stay away from this one but lets see what SSamir of DougB to confirm.

    The liner pins/rivets looks like they have been removed and put back on. The leather is a 8 and a half finger liner.

    Good eye, Lars...the liner rivets do look rather prominent, especially in the front, as if recently manipulated...

    Thanks Glenn. Yes especially the front ones, but there is a shadow around the rear one too. I think we have nailed this one now with the help of davejb.

    The classic "euro-fake". This one is toned too. Thanks for sharing.
