    This is free as it came with the RD03 I recently bought. It's textile with leather shoulders and elbows. It is a size 54, which is too large for me otherwise I would keep it. I think it's from the 80s, but I have no way to verify that. Well used, but it's FREE. I can send pics if you want them.
