vintage NOS novelty black leather snap button closure zipper pocket wallet business card holder
NOS Novelty wallet
This is a smaller sized novelty leather wallet. These are from someone who use to go around setting up at swap meets and motorcycle/car meets. These have only a single stitch keeping them together. They have two pockets that are good for cards or an ID, and a center pocket with zipper closure. The zipper used is very cheap and a does not slide smoothly. We can see this zipper breaking with use. This can slightly expand. There is a hole and hook in the lower right corner so it could be added to a chain. The hook can be taken off with some pliers.
Although old stock, these wallets have a number of imperfections as they were very poorly stored. Imperfections include; corrosion and tarnishing to metal and buttons, adhesive out of place and covering the buttons, scratches, scuffs, wrinkles/creases in leather, imprints in the leather from buttons being pressed against the leather in storage, DEEP imprints/scratches in spots, holes in the suede leather used for the inside pockets, stitching not done well, leather not cut straight. These were very poorly dyed black and the color came off on our hands while we were giving them a quick clean. If these get wet, the color may run.
As they have never been used, there is not a crease where the flap closes so they will need to be worked in.
