This Monarch came in excellent condition, the steerhide is the thick kind. Original lining was soiled so I had Johnson relined with satin quilt in a purple-ish color, very nice. Pockets are new to. I sent Johnson a NOS brass Talon for front zipper. It’s tagged 40, and fits me like a second skin but I can use two more inches at chest. Typical to Monarch, French seams throughout.
