What is the source of this Steering Wheel?

I got this leather steering wheel + a spacer from a friend. This smaller steering and the spacer are dramatically improvement of the driving position in the car.
I cannot see any manufactured mark on this steering wheel.
Do you know what the Source of this steering wheel is?

Everything about it, the spoke orientation, the slits in the spokes, and the trim ring over the screw heads says Nardi, but it doesn't have the "E Nardi" engraved signature on the right hand spoke.
It is a Nardi "Torino" pattern, and there are currently a lot of Chinese copies out there, but the leather quality looks too good for that.
Could it be that a previous owner has polished the spokes so heavily that the engraved signature has been polished off ?

(Seen that before),

It's definitely a Nardi knock off. See the one in our Spider to compare.
Stitching on the Nardi is slightly different, and does not "crossover" at the spokes.

Great driving wheels.
