Lock it

A few weeks ago I found this old money bag on ebay. The bag is made from ultra heavy cotton duck, it is beautifully embroidered, got a heavy weight zipper but the best part is the lock. I did some research and found the original patent which date back to 1932.

Why isn’t this used anymore? I could imagine a nice heavy weight canvas flight case with this lock, or a good weekender.
Maybe it is time for a remake of this one, just as a safe place for your treasures on a trip. I would bring my vintage rolex with me on my travels without a doubt!
