    Hello All,

    Here are two soviet saddle bags

    The first is dated, of excellent quality is dated 1930. Unfortunately it has some water staining.
    I bought if a few years ago from a lady who's grandad was killed fighting rebels in western Mongolia in 1932.

    The second saddle bag is much lighter, flatter and slightly larger (and handier), and is dated 1953

    Good stuff. The presswork on the coverside refers to MARXIST (Марксист) tannage factory in Leningrad. The inside stamp dated 1953 shows PROLETARIY (Пролетарий) tannage, Leningrad.

    Thanks Mehti. The "Marxist" stamp was hard to see, so I rubbed in some flour to create a contrast, and used a flash on the camera. Was worth it, you have kindly identified the factory.
