1928-1932 Hookless Talon money bag

http://www.ebay.com/itm/400943652431
This vintage deposit bag was made between 1928 and 1932 for the Elizabethtown Trust Company of Elizabethtown, PA. It is datable by its rare transitional Hookless zipper. These dual-branded zips were produced from ’28 to ’32 during a period where the Hookless Fastener Company of Meadville, PA had changed the name of their product from Hookless to Talon, but kept their company name on the slider. The company would change their name to Talon to match the name of their product in 1937. This is an early example of the transitional slider design, and has the full range of patents on the back, 3-20-17, 10-16-17, 11-25-19, 10-13-25, and 12-22-25.

1930s Canvas Messenger Bag with Talon Grommet zippers

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271640985218
This vintage canvas messenger bag was made in the late 1920s-early 1930s. It is made of lightweight green canvas, now faded. It has a single button closure flap, a divided interior and a strap with a D ring adjustment At some point, the original owner, a Mr. R.G. Pease, decided that he wanted a zipper top to make the contents of the bag more secure and added a zipper top. Instead of adding a closed end zipper that you would normally use on bags, he added two separable bottomed jacket zippers, with the early grommet bottomed stopbox and double hinge, pinlock, round holed slider, folding the separable end of the zippers to the inside of the bag.
