Vintage Marsden U.S. Government Issue Briefcase.
A piece of History.
Marsden was a major supplier of these simple briefcases to servicemen and Gov't employees from WW2 to the Vietnam War Era.

This one is in pretty good overall vintage condition, it's taken a lot of lumps and bumps, that's for sure.
Although most of the outside leather like material is intact, there is a large area on the bottom that is shredded....see pics....right down to the wood. Yep, that's right, the frame is made of wood.

Right above the tearing on the bottom edge, I was able to make out the words..." Marsden Inc. Property of U.S. Government" that's about it.

The stitching is fine.....the worst wear is only on the bottom edge where you might set it upright.
Laying flat, it looks fine....lots of edge wear...the brass metal fittings are dull from age.

The inside is actually in Very Good condition. Tan colored cardboard with a large pocket in the back.

Not a fancy briefcase...they were made very simply, just enough to get the job done.
But ..oh what VINTAGE CHARM.

Measures 18" L. x 12" W x 4 " Tall ... 45.7 cm L. x 30.5 cm W x 10.2 cm Tall

Truly a rare find
Own a piece of American History....great collector's item
