Notice the construction and the fat head rivets. Compare this to the Indian repro items and you can see the differences. Even the ones that had stamped letters where probably fake. All items are coming from army surplus and salvaged from becoming scrap.Last photo is from when these where found mixed inside army garbage. These are the only real baskets to reach the market.
