Default L&M Non-Zips - any left out there?

Just curious: Has every single L&M non-zip bag been sold by every stockist on the planet, or...???

macdaddy65,

By... "non-zip"... are you calling to mind the "usta be" plain
old standard.... leather bag?

Mayhap so... as those who swore by them... most probably
began their quest for the remainders... as soon as could be...

Presently... Good Luck... in finding one...

Regards,

Pip01

I have a friend who is trying to sell a couple of used L&M bags that are in good/great shape if you need one. In fact, I am supposed to be selling them for her but have not listed them yet.

There are 2 bags and both are "large" I believe. I can get a measurement if interested. I have pictures but the only marking on the bags is the month and year it was made.

I have one that was tied in but not seasoned and apparently never used. However, it was cut and tied for a lefty.

I have a medium, a 1987 - brand new, untouched, never had holes cut into it. Straight neck, and the leather is supple. Smells new, too. You'd think it was made this year. There's a brand on it - "272" with the first digit, not underscored, but over-scored. Also the number 4 is stamped on the tag, away from the 87.


Nothing complicating about it. I think I'll make one over the Christmas break - which starts today at 3:30 for me. (School teacher...)
