    Hello.
    Sorry, IMO both are modern repros.
    I have a similar one in my collection.
    I add the thread from our forum, with my question about my eagle.
    Regards, Jannis.

    Jannis, can we conclude the fabric on this fake is more of a "rough wool texture" than the original? I never had this type of fake in hand. It sure is one of the better ones out there.

    Hello.
    You are correct, with the repro the fabric is rougher, with originals it is finer.
    But the main difference is the thickness, with the repro it is twice as much.
    Regards, Jannis.

    Clearly shows the difference in thickness. Having this fake in hand would not fool anyone who has an original at home. Thank you.
