Heavy Leather Case Arrow Holder ?
I have no idea what this older used leather holder with carrying strap is. Measures 34inches long and the tube is 3 1/8inches in diameter. At the top the piece is engraved “ 1 9 4 0 1” with a “B” below it. The cartouche is a block shaped Cross with a P underneath is above the solid metal clasp.
The leather material is thick and quite heavy so I don’t believe it held a fishing pole. Arrows possibly ? or some other kind of tool? Was it military? The opening is secured with a heavy metal round hook. Inside the case there is a piece that guide whatever it is that it holds into a 2 inch narrow circular hole. Please let me know anything you can about this piece….it is in great condition, sturdy….where is the cartouche from?

    Those stampings look military to me & the quality too.

    I have a camera on here with a tripod and the carrying leather case. It looks a little like that. Look at my site and see if you thing that a tripod would have fit in it.
