But I think I have the closest to screen accurate Briefcase full of Blues here. Maybe. I just stripped the old "quick last minute" paint job from a year or two ago, and sanded it down, prepared for a proper coat. Sorry I don't have a more decent camera!
The only two differences I see are these,
But even the stitching and lock are the same! Do we have a thread on briefcase brands/models?

Here are three pictures from a briefcase I've been using for the last few years; I bought it for $5.00 at a garage sale a few years back and, after touching up the slightly worn areas, its served me excellently in every capacity from briefcase to overnight bag. I had no idea it was so close to the one in the movie, except for the curved corner stitching and clasp until now.
I actually lost it for a while and tried to buy one on eBay a while back, but the seller's dog tore it up and I wound up searching harder for this one.

I didn't show it in the pictures, but mine also has the same brass guide on it as Elwood's does. If I changed the lock, then the only difference between his and mine would be the curved vs straight corner stitching.
I searched everywhere on mine and I couldn't find a brand or model number or a manufacturer, though.
