    Could you post the image here, A lot of forum members (myself included) have an aversion to clicking through an unknown link.

    Yup, I don't see it as being anything obviously out of the ordinary for the 1960s.

    Unless/until I learn more about it, I'll think of it as a Samsonite or one of the many similar lines of hard-sided briefcases and luggage. "McSamsonite," if you will.

    You could probably find a near identical example on eBay, likely selling for next to nothing as hard-sided cases aren't fashionable these days.
