Offers ...
Birch Bark Trapper's Back Pack, which belonged to Issac Seppala,
who was known as
'The Judge' during his latter years in the Northern Town of
Republic, Michigan.


20 & 1/2" Tall
19 Across @ Top
8 & 1/2 Wide @ Base
Weight:  5 lbs.

The backpack may have been made by Issac; much more likely, it is
of Chippewa/Oneida make.

Issac was a WWI veteran (in the famed Yankee Division),
a Chicago policeman, sportsman and bon vivant,
before passing away in the early 1970's.
Three smaller traps and this trap with a bear claw in it
were inside the pack.
[This pack, uniforms, etc, were stored in the upstairs of a
garage for about thirty-five years.]

[We don't know exactly how one would go about conditioning/moisturizing the pack.]

This trap is being offered in an eBay auction which ends ten minutes before
the backpack.

[eBay policy will not let us include the bear claw.]
Issac's applejack? barrel & snoose? container are also being offered on current eBay listings;
  --his Yankee Division WWI Uniform(s) & Chicago Police Officer Uniforms soon.
