MASH Repro Tadpole Tiger Jacket?


Recommended Posts

Hi fellas. Currently I'm selling a Tadploe pattern Tiger jacket on ebay, but still not 100% sure it's not a MASH repro. Just in case maybe I need to double check if I list it correctly... Any ideas? Any inputs will be much appreciated.

Who told you this was a MASH repro?

 

This does not look like a MASH silver tiger stripe piece.

A Japanese guy told me he has a piece like this one, said it may be a MASH 2001 pattern. Does he mean this pattern?

If I'm correct... it's the same with some other vintage Tiger's buttons. Maybe I need to double check later...

Thank you, and another question... could I still can list it as "wartime vintage" on ebay? Otherwise I will end the listing and resell as a repro.

Yes, based on the photo, you have a "wartime vintage" item.
