    Posting for the first time. I just came across this one on an internet flea market. Owner said it was purchased in "86, used on a trip to Yosemity, put it in a box. Black bag has pockets, only has a flag/tag "Made in Tiwan", no "registered" mark to upper right of Matterhorn logo. There's also a Ken's price label on the Sigg, $5.65.

    It may be the one he purchased it from...great info.

    Also I just saw a black bag with "registered trademark", this one could be earlier than '86.

    Even with its obvious lack of use do replace the fuel line before using. They are rubber and perish with age
