I have an original Thompson canvas case, the kind designed to carry the 1921 model with the buttstock off and with an external pouch for a drum and mag pouches.

It's in pretty decent shape.

What's the value of this case? I'd like to trade it for some more usable accessories like a drum.

Adding: This case is original to circa 1929 when the Thompson it is holding was bought.

Last Knob Creek original was $650. Back table of the sales building on the left side. Was there on Saturday and then again on Sunday. I was partial to the $50 ones in the middle. biggrin.gif
