The reverse side is always the best to show and rule if a period piece.  Look forward to the pictures.

 

something like this.

Unfortunately, at this point, I am going to say not a period piece. At least not Kriegsmarine.  Notice the zig zag (sawtooth) appearance on the reverse.  This is from the Jacquard loom which was how these were constructed.  Many forgeries just have the single stitch and not this sort of saw tooth pattern. 

This photo from another thread shows the various constructed material and their appearance. The reverse is the key.  Take a close look at the reverse. If it is just a single even line, then that is not a good sign of being a (WW2) tally.  

 

Best regards,

Cool, it was cheap and cheerful so no great loss, I did wonder if it could be Bund or GDR?

Not really my thing but thanks for the info about the stitching, I have saved that to my hard drive but at the same time forgotten some more childhood memories!

Best
