Mike and or others....Here is a few shots of the old case that I have. Has anyone else seen a latch setup like this? Judging from the wear pattern on the top inside, it looks like it would have come from a wraptail or trapeze era. It also has "feet" on both the back side of the case as well as the side oppostie the latch. It came from Parker Music in Houston...
Sorry I missed this earlier.
I have seen these latches before. The top of the case looks flat, rather than arched. I suspect it is early, maybe 1953.
