These things are, as you'll know, rather hard to come by, always much, much sought after, especially in this combination...and mine is Brand New in it's plastic Bag and it's cloth sleeper Bag.
Tags still on.
It's a lovely thing, but I cannot justify keeping it for posterity anymore.
For the record there's one on the 'Bay for sale, with the not-very-popular perforated leather bottom, no bags or tags, and very used with fading and stains for almost $700!
Mine is a veritable bargain, and here's why!
BUY mine and wait for it...wait for it.........
I will GIVE you, yes, GIVE you, a Tan Filson 257 in MINT condition with 2 shoulder straps - one UNUSED bridle leather and one English made Chapman Olive thick canvas/leather one.
Here is where it gets EVEN better!!!
Add $200, and I will throw in an almost new, simply gorgeous Filson Rugged 24 oz. Canvas and Leather Olive Backpack with the Bridle leather and wool felt straps, as well!
This thing alone sell between $350-450 on the 'Bay!
Pics up soon!
On their way to a lovely new home!
