    Hard to date these, but it is a Cawnpore pattern which is an early version of the India pattern and these with the padded exterior tend to be pre WWII, though as I posted it is hard to date for certain.

    Cool pith and one I would buy if the price was not too much, though I don't know what is a good price as I have never bought one of this type.

    They are rarely dated, especially if it is a private purchase type like this one. I have one with a broad arrow stamp and one with a dated label, but both of those are Army issue types and not private purchase.

    Without a known history or signs that it had a flash or other insignia added you cannot tell.

    Nuno, your inbox is full mate so I can't reply to your last message. Be good to see the date on this when you have it in the hand, as this type can be pre WWI I think.
