this is the first artillery wrap in my collection and went wrong ... anyway, it's very well made to fool collectors. it's not nice to find out such high-end fakes to fool collectors.
now, it goes back for refund.
thanks everyone for posting here and helping with this.

I'm glad you will be able to get your money back. Not all of my collecting mistakes were so cheap.
We have all been where you have. Important thing is to learn from the experience, seek help from experienced collectors on the WAF and when the day comes help other collectors. Above all enjoy the hobby. Jim

I hope you can get a refund..An exceedingly rare wrapper if it was all original.

following references from scott pritchett, in my opinion, skull are type 4. pins, they don't go across lapel.
Ok....maybe ask him where he got it.

Would be nice to find out who is making them.

So, Is it a fake jacket made with original wool and lining and original insignia?
Thanks

Considering avaible photos of collar tabs, imo the answer is no for this point.

I think it is all fake. Hard to be sure without handling the wool, but it just looked like the flimsy wool I handled on other bogus wraps.

Agreed, all is fake IMO, wool no good, lining too sturdy, collar tabs …

Compare with original unworn wraps and you will see.. even with those that lack the so desirable aged patina.
