can someone tell me if the leather sucks? it feels and looks papery and dry. i really wasn't trying to pick on every minor thing, cos i probably am not a good judge, so i'll be grateful if you can advise me whether an exchange is in order. you find the plate crooked? v slightly? should i be bothered by the distinct difference between the left (wrinkly) and right (smooth)? i asked for smooth and not so wrinkly - only this half and the bottom are smooth. these creases are considered normal?
