    Not for me...I don't recall ever seeing one with such interior stitching, looking forward to our dedicated HJ Collectors' Opinions...
    I also recommend comparing with the known originals posted here on the Forum...
    cheers, Glenn

    Hi baconeggontoast
    I does not look right to me for sure it looks almost new and the stitching is incorrect as observed by Glen also the scuff mark in the centre looks like a token gesture of patina .

    But still only my opinion

    Happy hunting

    Not good. Avoid.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The point here is that one might post a link and ask a question which is answered to satisfaction, fair enough.

    Then the link disappears, becomes broken or is removed over time as is certainly always the case. The thread with the link, which might have been a useful reference for many others who would look at the pictures, read the comment then not need to ask the same question, becomes useless in all respects.

    A forum such as this is essentially an information exchange so the threads need to remain as a kind of archive of useful reference material that can not be found in any book and will answer many questions before they are asked.

    "A picture paints a thousand words" as the saying goes!

    Apart from that, I don't like this armband either. In addition to the points made already; to my eye there is something not right about the weave of the material that looks wrong to me. Can't quite put my finger on it without checking my own items but it just looks wrong. This is not a piece I would even pick up to examine I feel.

    Regards

    The pith helmet is way overpriced. Just an observation...
