This vintage bank bag was made by Rifkin with their 1932 patent Arcolock. This is an early variant with a rare no-hole Talon zipper with D stops on the end. Earlier examples are made of canvas, while this one feels like a heavyweight nylon. Talon switched to a solid stop from the D-Stop in the 1950s, and Rifkin switched to a design with a windowed slot later on, so I would put the manufacture of this to the mid 1940s.
