I received a couple of what I hope are authentic MKVII gas mask bags yesterday. I expected dirt and odor. However, these smell like mildew; there are permanent rust stains on one and the other is so faded that it appears tan. I have three questions: 1. How do I know these are authentic? (both have the two water drains in bottom, and two brass snap buttons with slight rim surrounding a "squiggly" pattern on top and Patent to "Newey"? on underside. One has printed flap underside "MKVII M&Co.1941" and the other has no printing.) 2. Should/Can I remove the rust stains (and possibly fade the bag further?) 3. Do you suggest returning these bags in hope of finding others in better condition? I appreciate any suggestions. Thank you. belloq
