Hi

 

I would suggest that without pictures it would be impossible to tell. If the colour is too bright and yellowish i would saqy repro.

 

Here is mine for reference.

for future reference do not use outside links. the forums image posting can be a pain in the butt, however photobucket pictures get deleted and we end up with useless posts referencing images that are no longer there...

Hi

 

Reproduction, the fixtures and fitting have no age to them. The brass rings look like they were made yesterday.

 

Even mint unissued equipment shows signs of age.

 

Regards
