Default Tropical Boards, opinions

Hi mates
here are the tropical boards I have just bought from good seller.
They are moderately worn and are fully matching.

I should like to know your opinions about them.
Many thanks
Marco

Default straps

There are several irregular features that make these appear to be reproductions to me though the materials used may be original.

The back strap has been done upside down ?
Lining material on the upper part ?
A picture of the sewing strap/ upper board would be interesting to see ?

Hi Marco

Sorry, don't like them either. Have discussed these before. While the materials are correct, the construction & the buttonholes are not etc.

Ciao
Tim

I don't like these straps either, but agree that the materials appear to be original.
Collecting shoulder straps has become a minefield !
