Only my opinion, but it is someone’s recent creation. Look at difference between light green cloth and new dark green twisted spacer cord. And box finish looks new as well as brass fittings.

What is the interior diameter in mm of a size 15? I have a big 1934 that Don papered a few years ago. Said it was a re-make of 1940. Loose on my fingers.
