Pouch thoughts

Iím interested in opinions on this pouch?







Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.

Interesting. I look forward to some of the more informed opinions that should be forthcoming.

Do you by chance have a pic that shows the side, or edge, of the bag? I'm assuming there us a sizable gusset that the strap used to attach to.

It looks Very like what we used to call  a cartridge bag.
I have one near identical that was Grandfathers, or G't Grandfathers.

Best,
Richard.

English cartridge bag. I would say first half of the 20th century.

Thanks for the wisdom.  I hope the owner is not too disappointed, but he had his suspicions

Yes, it certainly looks more modern to me, with the stitching, hardware and rivets.  The pebble grained leather looks more recent to my eye too. 

Looks like it was badly stored.

I would say almost certainly the first quarter of the 20th century.  That pebble-grain leather is identical to that used on M. 1909 German 3-pocket ammo pouches worn on the belt.  I think the Brits may have also used that style of leather - and civilian market as well.  That plus what sure looks like machine stitching knocks it well outside the Rev War period.

My Grandfather had one almost exactly like that for his shotgun.  His was from the 1930's
