Hi guys, I have a early production Ben (not my first shot, but a production piece). Hong Kong coo, white hair... came from Cinci, Ohio, and most likely originally with a DT saber. The question I have is has anyone ever seen a early production Ben cape that does not have the crosshatch pattern on one side? In other words, it has no crosshatching. I know red flags may be going up but I have studied this cape for hours, comparing it to my other production Ben capes. The material is 100% the same! The color is 100% the same! The weight and thickness are 100% the same! And the cut is 100% dead on! Just no crosshatching.
I did a little digging but have come up with nutten : (
Anyone out there have any info regarding this. I have written a couple other Like Bill McBride and Chris_G. I'm curious to your thoughts...
Thanks for your time, -Steve
