I bought a 71 deluxe with a used case the guy said he bought in 71, I’m not sure for sure but it looks like an original lifton case, I just want confirmation of what it is, year maybe, and estimated value. I’ll post photos soon.

Looks like an early Cali-Girl case to me?

The later Lifton cases had a logo on the underside of the neck-rest.

The logos often come off and get lost. It's a 5 latch case, so I would say it's from the late 50's.
Most early LP cases were/are brown. Almost every later '50s case I've seen was more of a light, tan color.

Not saying you're wrong. Just my experience.

Definitely late 50's Gibson Les Paul Case. Median price roughly $1,500 in that condition.

Not what is considered a "proper" Cali case, though many refer to it as such.
