Indiaink, just amazing! So glad you found another wallet in this style. I saw another post where you said it was no longer in your collection. Do you find you use the wrist strap often?
Yes, as a security feature. I put my hand through it and hold on to the wallet. Sometimes I let the wallet swing by the strap.

Modern did a fantastic job. That is a very skilled and wonderful restoration. So glad you have you "new" wallet back.

Thanks, everyone! I've already got my next project for Modern lined up, but that's later this year or next year.

And SS - you are right - I just Googled Tony Pecoreela, and indeed, he is the "president/owner" of Modern Leather Goods!

Repair is impressive, and I love the wallet--I'm partial to small bags with wrist straps for date nights and "in and out" errand runs, and this looks perfect. :heart: the edgy studs!
