Recently found a Carbine Case of a type I have never seen before. It is nothing like the real or repos on the market. It is made out of a
stiff, dark canvas-like material with a very sturdy zipper
mked "Crown" USA,it has sturdy leather tabs afixed where the zipper begins & ends. Printed on the outer Rt. side of the case, in 3 lines are:
C - 153357
There are no Manufacture marks other than the above stampings.

Any information would be appreciated.

I have a similar carry case. I have made several posts looking for comments but have not gotten much response. Here is one of my posts:

"I picked up this carbine carry case several years ago. It seems to fit Riesch's description of the Type 1 carry case. The guy I bought it from said he bought from a vet who brought back a Japanese sword in it. The seller bought for it for the sword. Not that it matters, but there are straight-line slices in the fabric near the end.

There is no strap. The zipper is massive compared to the ones I'm used to seeing. Also the fabric is much heavier - it seems to have been coated with maybe wax or oil. I noticed as I put together the photo album, the case is closed when the zipper is in the center. The cases I have with straps are closed when the zipper is at the end.

I have included photos comparing to a strapped case in the album."

Manufacturers marks are usually inside the case.
