Peal Briefcase Legit? Discontinued or did I get ripped off?

Got this off ebay and feels solid/compares well to the SAB westminster i have but i can't find mine on the BB website leading me to believe that its a fake or (more likely) discontinued; that said i couldn't even find archived images of this case by peal for BB on archive.org. Would appreciate any advice. Do you know if they ever made this model (seems to compare to the westminster) in Peal? Thank you.

Have you ever seen this in the Peal lineup? I'm sorry if I sound paranoid/delusional/newbish but (I am, and) this is meant to be a gift for my brother so I want to make sure I'm not giving him something that isn't real (I wanted to go full out SAB but my finances at the moment wont allow for that)

Just kidding, no one fakes brands so obscure, only an SF'er would recognize them. If you got it off ebay it's almost certainly discontinued (at least 90% of clothes/accessories on ebay are - which is why it's so cheap.) But frankly, it doesn't matter. A briefcase like that is a timeless classic and will be just as nice 20 years from now. It will make an awesome present. Relax and enjoy the look on your brother's face when he sees it.

I wish I'd have the opportunity, anyone who didn't make it should take some solace in the fact that it's a gift for my brother to celebrate his becoming gainfully employed at a large firm before age 21. It will hurt handing it over to him though.
