I sort of lost the collecting bug by the time a couple of nice 4204's came up, and I bowed out on the competition on those bags. Maybe some day I will find a nice old 4204 like some here have (wink wink riqal and jaja)

But who is to say? Maybe this year and next year will be better than last year? I wish you all luck!

Is catch as catch can. Also find it can be hit or miss as to how a vintage bag holds up, even now. I've had a few that were in great shape to the eye but fell apart once hit.

It's all about the quality of the leather that they are made of, and what kind of enviorment they were in. With the right level of humidity and temperature a forty, fifty or more year old bag can be like new. I have several in the 55 plus range that are like that, the A. J. Reach bag is in the 75 plus year range, and all I can say is that the condition it was in when I got it was amazing. I've also gotten bags half that age where they are display only, and can't be safely fully inflated. Only a couple of them are like that tho. Like what others have said, when you buy on line, it's the luck of the draw.
