I note that it's our old 'friend' who is the seller.

Not only was it sold by our 'old friend', Mr 18fl/Militarytrader, but thats at least the 3rd one of those he has had up for sale, all with different contents.

Either he has changed the contents around (the 'original items' being substituted for more 'original items') or he has a run of them. Considering some of the things hes known to have sold in the past, its probably the latter.

Hmmm....looks like searching for old briefcases in charity shops and applying transfer onto them might be a profitable career move

Certainly is, this is now the fourth one he has had up for sale. I guess as the WW2 with the AM stamps are exhausted he's found a few of WW1 vintage now. Still, I guess there are always those waiting to be duped out of their cash...

Doesnt give a closeup of the embossing, but from the first shot ot looks very lopsided, or handpainted.
