Stores Ref. 22c/1148, Size 4. The leather is al little dry to the touch but completely supple and in excellent overall condition, fully embossed with ref nos. and broad arrow. All straps are good and retain most of the original coatings on the press studs. The lining has light, fairly even soiling and is very good bar a few small holes. The rubber receiver carriers are both excellent and the chinstrap retains good elasticity and colour. Fully wired with a mid tan coloured loom, 10A/13466 receivers and black cased bell jackplug. A very good post WW2 produced example. The C-type was redesignated after the war and given new reference numbers. Stock code H15391.
