These are such cool bags, with a design dating back to the early part of the 20th century. These were used as safety bags, made from very heavy durable canvas, with a leather loop allowing the bag to be securely locked. Often used as mailbags, or for carry secret documents that required restricted access. This particular example was made by CA Hoffman & Sons, a California manufacturer of leather good. Likely made in the 1950s, it obviously saw long years of use, with the USS Finback (SSN 670) commissioned into service in 1970. Finding bags like this is good condition is hard, let alone with a USN connection.
