: I know we pretty much covered this topic, however I have a question about one of the variations concerning the attachment loop holding the metal rings to the bag. So far I have found both a canvas and a cotton webbing versions for the 1942 bags in the past. I was wondering if any other collectors, knew what the deal is on this variation, and which might be more accurate to the Indy Trilogy. The main reason I am asking is, I found one Mark VII bag with the
: " VII W & G 1932 LTD 1942" printing, like the one sold at the Indiana Jones Butterfeild auction a few years back. It has the cotton webbing ring attachment, but I was under the impression they were canvas. I know, I am obsessed with minor details , but I would appreciate any input.

: Thanks

In my opinion the 'original' attachment loop was cotton. Just watch
the bridge scenes again in ToD. You can see the light, yellowish green
cotton loops very well, especially during the scene when Indy and
Mola Ram are hanging at the bridge. I have got the "VII W & G 1932 LTD
1943" version and it has cotton loops as well. And like you said the
1942 model carried in ToD had cotton loops instead of canvas.

I'd appreciate any more information about the loops as they weren't
mentioned before...


PS: By the way, Dan, has this Mark Allen guy a website???
