Curious that collectors don't speak about this rope in a such important Forum.....

 

Since about 40 years, I saw numerous ropes  in various packings......but, It seems, in Great Britain, before D Day ropes had NO PACKING ...(photos taken before D Day)

Some dealers, since 40th anniversary of D Day,  from USA, from Belgium try selling ropes in different packings in France and all around the world.

 

What is your opinion about this ?

 

Because ropes have never the exact Weight,, diameter or lenght...
