    I checked it, not a mark just dirt. I understand a lot of these jump cases were reproduced in the last twenty years ?

    I think if you really check the stitching and dot snaps between original and reproduction jump cases, you will be able to note the differences

    The repros certainly have their place as you can take them to the range without having to worry about sun fading (or getting soaked from a UKicon perspective).

    the tiny stain in the middle looks to me to be ink bleed over from where they stamped the flap and immediately folded it over before it was completely dry leaving the partial unlegible 1943 smudge, imo. I have a first pattern shelter half this way.
