Alex in the second picture of the mae west you had, is the colour yellow or green? I say this because do you reember last year (around July) when there was a 193 pat. Mae West on eBay that looked like a similar colour to Alex's? There followed a long debate regarding the correct colour and originality. The vest reached £1000, but didn't reach the sellers asking price-he later sold it at Beltring.
Is this the vest that you sold Alex, if it is yellow, a Canadian one? If you sold it, you didn't sell the stole as well did you? They are worth a lot in themselves, especially one in as good condition as yours.
