We're not sure about the date, but with the pink lining and the Gibson badge on the side circa 1965 seems about right as the pink lining was far less common later with a yellow-gold lining being more commonly seen. Lifton closed for good in 1973, so early '70s is the latest possible date. And yes, it could be earlier than '65. This was probably for a Gibson Mastertone TB-250 or TB-800. Original leather handle, in exceptional condition but it has been used so there are minor scuffs here and there. No tears in the lining or the outer covering.
