    Hello Tony. I think your instincts are correct. The material looks too new synthetic imo. I do believe it's trying to be this skull pattern which is bevo weave whereas your example looks machine embroidered. IMO modern reproduction. Best regards

    I believe the Collectors Guild TK above is a Belgian made variation.
    The OP TK looks bad, maybe the Droopy Eyed fake.

    Yeah Chris it is a Belgian variant. But the two I posted for reference looks like a mashup of each. I think the features of the OP's are grotesquely over exaggerated. And the construction isn't consistent with original production pieces jmo. More images for reference from bando/beaver book. Best regards.

    The droopey eyed fake as mentioned by Chris for comparison. Very similar features including the rather wide embroidered black edge.
