Hi Joel
I'd just like to know what factors incline you to seeing Steve's bag as relatively older than the other examples.
Well, it had already been around the block a few times when he bought it in 1983. And I like the execution, especially, those nifty zig-zag outer side borders. The striped back is not a huge artistic challenge, but she did a nice, tasteful job on that, too. Finally, I have a quirky rule of thumb on yellow that almost certainly lacks even a shred of validity: if the yellow is over-strong, like a batch of French's mustard they had to reject at the quality control desk, I suspect late. My Tatari has it. Steve's looks like it has a much more mellow shade.

Just my impression. And keep in mind, I am not vaulting it back to the 19th century.
