Thanks guys, I was offered one recently and was not sure of the value. Canvas was the earlier khaki color. No makers mark or date.

For what it's worth I think that one that sold for only $65 was an anomaly. I had that in my watch list and was surprised that there was only one bid/bidder.

Earlier WW1 set could bring $100,as the canvas has different hang straps.
I've got a couple of the canvas sets. I've wondered about the different hooks/hangers on the back. Pray tell, what's the difference.

Straps,hooks,hangers,clips...there were different ones and various changes. The early WW1 'steam hose condenser bag' was a lighter tan colored canvas item with sewn leather straps. Apparently the colors ran several different types but were all printed on the front. I cannot recall exactly...look in Segel's book for the correct straps,etc.

C59762 Standard Case. hooks go to the sides

C59898 Pack horse. Hooks go up. (Part # on mine is different. I don't buy the horse ones so don't have any other examples. Probably just a more current late war number.

RIA 1917 marked. Only one I've seen. Someone has removed all the straps. The metal loops are not correct.
