    totally agree with you pretty sure the strap is a repro, rust is too RED? and definition on the wear below the wire is made up and very poorly at that!!!
    as the saying goes jmo

    Hi Guys, someone really over did the fake oxidation on this one!

    The shell might be an original which someone very agressivly cleaned: the paint does look original in places. I think they then tried to age it again, hence the red rust etc, then added the fake wire basket and the fake oxidation. The liner looks original.

    Cheers, Ade.
