Correct Color for 1972 W108 Tool Bag/Pouch

What is the correct color for the tool pouch on the 1972 cars. I have seen both the red and green ones as correct.

thanks.

There was a switch in there somewhere, or I least I have always thought so. I used to find these in salvage yards all the time (twenty-five years ago) and I mostly saw red ones.

Thanks for posting that photo. When I see this sort of thing in a salvage yard it is impossible to know if I am looking at an original or a replacement.
