I've seen pictures of some Speedys where the area where it is handheld is much darker than the overall handle color. I dont mind a patina as long as its not super darker where I hold it. Is this normal ir does this only happen when a Speedy is REALLY REALLY REALLY old?? I havent had any lv long enough to know. I hope mine wont get dark like that until ive had it for at least 10 years!
