That would be very, very expensive, I believe.

I especially love the green felt interior of the case.....
 

 

I've got a similar case, and it is lovely. Unfortunately, it doesn't get that much use as I prefer to use my Filson 256 most of the time! 

 

 

By the way, I think that the lining is actually pigskin suede, rather than felt.

This question is purely from curiosity. I will surely never own a Russian Reindeer case. When you have something that's been under water encased in mud for 200 years, do you treat it for water resistance? Do you use a leather treatment at all on it?

I have a briefcase that I have listed for sale and I was wondering how I would pack it for shipment?  Does anyone here have experience with this?  I guess I am looking for a better solution than crafting a custom sized cardboard box with some scissors and tape.  Any help would be appreciated.

The Russian Leather was known in it's day for its water resistance, so it hasn't been an issue, though I haven't carried the bag in a rain storm, I have worn my shoes when it was raining on an occasion, and they held up fine. As for treating the leather, the secret is to not let the leather dry out. Depending on use, it does need to be fed occasionally with a leather treatment. I use Saphir leather balm. For heavy use, once every 6 months or so. with lighter use, probably once a year.
