I would recommend you review the following links for the fur or hair sporran.

    You are more likely to be able to get the documentation on the fur if you have a new sporran, even if it is custom made to look vintage. I do not know what documentation or information you would need for a vintage sporran without the fur source documented.
    I was going to comment along these lines as well. I know that some species are banned in the UK so be careful if you go with a fur covered for full mask sporan.

    I would also stay away from the piper goat/horse hair sporans. They seem to be more costume than normal wear.
    I stole this from Jordan, but I have to agree with its sentiment...

    The hielan' man he wears the kilt, even when it's snowin';
    He kens na where the wind comes frae, But he kens fine where its goin'.
