I was going through some of my spare parts today and found a box of Scandinavian linings. Can't remember when I bought them so I am curious as to whether they are the older ones or the new "tar babies". Is there a way to identify the difference by something in the weave pattern or something distinctive about the older ones?

The good ones are usually dark to medium brown with a precise clean look to the weave.

After doing a little searching through the forum, I found these pics.

Original Scandinavia band:

scandinavia

Three bands, to me they appear to be:

Left - New Scandinavia (tar baby)
Middle - Kevlar (yellow)
Right - an original Ward's Royal Weave cotton band

To the experts, if I have mis-identified any of them, please post a correction, thanks :-)

The left one appears to be similar to what Mac's sells and does not have the impregnated black stuff - whatever the heck it's called. It does have the same non-original weave though. The "tar babies" are most definitely treated and black.

Good cotton bands such as the older original style Scandinavia, Montgomery Wards, Allstate, Marks and other cotton bands have the distinguishing close,tight fine weave.

This weave gives them more durability.

Even the old Ford cotton bands have a tight weave.
