Default Fake DPM rank slides?

Hi,

This seller seems to sell a lot of 'original British army' goods, but they don't seem quite right. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F172455339345 this is what I am looking at, and it just seems that the chevrons are too white. What do you think?
Cheers,
Conan

Nothing wrong with those . Why would anyone bother faking those? There are still tens of thousands of those kicking around with very little value !

Agree not worth the effort of faking these

Cheers guys, makes sense. Just seemed a little off-colour from the pictures I've seen.

The guy sells genuine surplus. Probaly the way the light is when the images were done.

As the seller is a subsidiary of Field Textiles (theMOD disposals agents), I really dont think they would go to the trouble of faking an obsolete, and largely unwanted item such as this.
