These tubes are begging for more than powder puff loads. I doubt that the original owner was interested in sporting clays. More like the wrath of a man concealed in a marsh, patiently awaiting the pending mayhem.

After a clean, conditioning and a polishing with lambs wool the old leather case is reasonably presentable. It still retains the stains, burns and scuffs from a long hard life. Rusty, the retired saddle maker will have the straps done using the original brass buckles. They had previously been repaired and were beyond help.
Still contemplating the absent brass plaque, may have had the owners name.
