One is softer and more flexible (similar to a zip cape), while the other is more rigid (similar to the rugose PBP cape), just like you. Of the two, the softer is from a childhood collection which I purchased along with the original PBP cardback. I can not say for sure if the more rigid is 100% original. However, the pattern on both sides of the cape is similar and reflect what is seen in Javi’s book.
I apologise in advance for these photos (I really need to upgrade my phone).
On the first pic, which is the softer cape, you can see what looks like an overall horizontal pattern, but if you look closely (directly below the hole in the lighter area) matches the vertical pattern from Javi’s book.
On the second pic you can see the same pattern where the light catches it near the left hand edge on the more rigid cape at the front.
It is my intentions to get all 6 capes I have, examined by Javi for authenticity, as I believe I have all three known PBP capes, as well as a couple of dubious ones.
I hope this helps in some small way.
Thanks mate, I will take a look and then I will try to get some power on my camera and take some new pictures of my capes for the thread
