Default Sam Brown



Hi, bought this Sam Brown but it is unmarked and could, therefore, be any date. Any thoughts on its age? Thanks.

Looks to be a bog standard Sam Browne, with no particularities to help ID it as to age or origins. Well worn, but the leather doesn't look as if it was WWI vintage, unless it's been incredibly well looked after, so probably WWII or later, based on that slim thread of logic.

Based on color I would say it was American. The russet brown color is different from the standard Brit.
