Repro Early Tropical Strap at ebay

I have spotted this one and it's not original IMO. Thought to warn those who are thinking to bid.

Any further comments welcomed.

Chris

Re: Repro Early Tropical Strap at ebay

I don't like it either Chris. Contrived wear & the buttonhole stitching not looking good  And is that the same beige backing on the underside of the tongue thats on the other recent fakes we have seen ?

Hi Tim. The piping they used is from original stock. It's a nice and uncommon woollen one. I don't know if the moth bites are real or if it's part of the faker's work.
The picture of the tongue's lining is from an angle so not sure which fake type it matches.
