Re: early tropical litzen

Ciao Amico.

I don't know if it's the bad quality of the photo but i do not like what i see.

The waffefarbe looks more like Polizei.

These items have been copied very well. Here is the new breed.

They look identical to yours IMO. Those you posted must have been bleached.

Re: early tropical litzen

Hi guys, thanks for the extra pics.
I still don't like them though.
I checked them again on a different monitor and the color i get is faded orange/pink.
Any comments on the pair i posted above?

Re: early tropical litzen

Hi friends
Sorry but I am away. I'll send you new pics tomorrow.
Chris I guarantee the strip color is not orange but is yellow/brown and the base is blue Grey.
As the light when I took the pictures was not correct I modified the pics with window's photo editing trying to get more accurate color.
Probably it was not so.

Re: early tropical litzen

In this pic we can clearly see trace of the old thread used to fix them to the tunic.
