Hi all

this fez up for grabs, I think it looks good, but I'd rather have some expert opinion on it.

Looks good based on these pictures.... However, fakes abound. Value is very subjective..... $1500./2500.00 US... IMO!

Would say Paki fake in my opinion....ribbed material was first red flag for me.Granted Italian made can have ribbed silk/material but this looks totally different to me.

I think it's real, but quite worn, and the insignia look to have been reattached.
