  1. Hi, I purchased this HMS cap tally recently, but I have some doubts if it's a WWII era item. My doubts are based in fact I observed a use of some kind of sinthetic material when I did a burn test at a ribbon black thread. Another doubt I have is about the use of this kind of woven pattern at WWII era british tallies: And my question is: There's a safe way to distinguish WWII era H.M.S. cap tallies from modern ones from pictures? Regards, Ricardo
