2) large hobos with about a 7 or 8 inch strap drop that fit right under your arm (approx 14.5 x 12 inches )

3) larger hobos with a longer messenger 14 inch strap drop to hit more at the hip (approx 17 x 12.5 inches)

4) satchel or bowlers (approx 16.5 x 9.5 inches and 6 inch strap drop)

5) totes (approx 14 x 8.5 inches and 5 inch strap drop)

6) flaps (approx 13 x 9.5 inches and 9 inch strap drop)

The GG emblem may be studded or not and the bag came in a pebbled leather, smooth leather, multicolored fabric or exotic crocodile.

The bowlers have sold on ebay in the $1300s to $1700s.
