On Ebay now: a vintage Abercrombie & Fitch shotgun case…

It’s hard to believe, but Abercrombie & Fitch used to be one of America’s premier outfitters. Their old flagship store in Manhattan used to have an entire floor dedicated to shotguns and rifles.

They also carried leather shotgun cases like this one on Ebay now. This A&F case is what’s know as a “VC” or compact, and  it was made by Bryant – a well know English leather goods maker. It’s a nice, solid case, fully wool lines, and pretty rugged. On top of that, it has a great vintage look. This is a double-clasp model, which makes it a bit harder to find. It also has it’s original – another plus. To give you sense of what this one is worth, here’s another one that a dealer has listed for $895.

BTW: the other case that the seller is offering in the same listing is way too small to be for a fly-rod. It looks like a scope case to me.
