My new spy

  1. I got this spy today and it is rather lovely, just wondering what year is it? This is what the tag says: AD 45096 also, what can I do to protect the leather from wearing off? It is soo soft!;)
  2. Also all the hardware is gold apart from the top and bottom end of the long plaited thing at the front, is this ok or has the gold rubbed off?
  3. Pictures??
