Seaforth sporran

Here is the version I'm used to as an Officer's sporran

No one knows?

I don't know anything about sporrans, but.......

It looks in very good conditon to be as old as stated. I would have expected some wear to the leather or age patina.

Unissued leather items of that period do take on a certain colour.

I agree with you about the leather. I think the sporran body is a replacement.

I'm not positive but I think sporran backs of Officer's sporrans of that period would be red leather with a small pocket integrated.

The seller admits there are reproductions of that style cantle as well.
I'm still not convinced it is an Officer's sporran cantle
