 Each to their own. IMO Viberg's Apsley is really cool boot pattern and also pretty faithful to the original: http://www.freemanbrand.com/journal/cabourn-x-viberg-apsley-cherry-garrard-boot.html I wish they would have done the chamois version in either stitchdown or nail down construction: https://viberg.com/collections/footwear/products/apsley-boot-tobacco-chamois?variant=13274591876
@Whirling those markings look like toe tracks to me.   Brian the bootmaker explained toe tracks well at denimbro:    "The indentation you see on the boots is called a toe track. The reason a boot has a toe track is because the vamp went through the crimping process. It is used to get all the stretch out of the vamp because when a bootmaker needs to turn something that's 2D into 3D it is more work if the vamp is not crimped.

the last is same (320) in both Apsley models. http://www.freemanbrand.com/journal/nigel-cabourn-scotts-last-expedition.htmlthough, I agree that the toe shape looks a bit different.

IIRC the eyelet issue had something to do with eyelets being too far apart from each others. Anyway, at least for me, 5 eyelets have worked very well in my size 8 1940's service boots. A lot easier/faster to get on and off compared to 7 eyelet boondockers and 8 eyelet service boots.
