Old Asahi Pentax Briefcase Bag - Value?

Hi

Got a bag which looks like original Asahi Pentax bag. The exterior looks good but inside the foam on left and right side has tore off. Do this have any value or just throw in a junk?

That's a really cool gadget and I'm sure somebody wants it! I doubt it's junk at least. These things deserve to live on.
How big is it? Where in Sweden do you live? I'm from outside Västerås and may be interested.

Looks like one in really good shape is about 60€ in Japan: Rakuten: More than Vintage EXPO '70 Osaka World Exposition ASAHI PENTAX camera hardware bag Camera hard bag shoulder bag Asahipen tax ? all over Japan 3,000 yen?- Shopping Japanese products from Japan

Sorry, but I'd pass because those plush interiors are breeding grounds for molds. If the interior isn't either new or able to be wiped down completely I always pass.

Personally, I think it's a nice collector's item.
Definitely not junk.

Thanks for the replies.

VisualD: Looks like its that bag except mine have cooler/more original logo. . The bag lives in Malmö.

Lurch: You live in Australia? Its very far from here.

The inner was a little loose so I glued it back took off the foam o the sides ad used tape to get off the "dust" the foam has become.

Now it looks pretty neat. Gluing some new foam on the sides and it is ready to be used.

I noticed it will be good as replica(is it called that?) when shooting product photos.

Ah, my brother's girlfriend lives very close to your bag then.
