Hasselblad case #511, key included but not pictured. Well, this is the most beautiful way to store or transport a kit of Hasselblad gear. Has 2 minor wear issues see below. Both latches function beautifully, but, only one of the two locks is lockable with the key.
When I have locked the case, I only lock one side. There are some imperfections of course. There are minor wear marks visible in the photos. The leather comprising the hinge of the case is splitting for the two inches on the left side of the case. This has been the case for ten years.
It has not progressed, but I have only opened it about 100 times. The case is still quite sturdy and viable to use despite this. The handle is covered in leather, and the place where the handle is attached to the case has a split on each point where it attaches.
These handles have rope inside them and still appear strong. But I have not tried to destroy the case so I can't say how strong. I would just keep using it the way it is.It is much better than my other case #511, which I still take it out in the city fully loaded, and those handles have leather that isn't attached at all anymore. I have another case #511 that I use to take places, which used to be owned by Georgia O'keefe, who's 1000f kit came inside it, and that case is rather beat up and I like using it because it can't be hurt anymore. The lenses I have kept in it have remained fungus free in ten years, which is a good endorsement for the case.
You don't want a used animal skin case to store lenses, unless you are sure it is not infected, and has not been stored in a damp environment. This one has been in air conditioned space year round. You will be compensated in that fashion.
