Thin brown leather wallet with brown stitching. There are scratches on the exterior, and the leather is worn down on the corners and edges. In the top left corner, there are four holes in a rectangular shape, looking as though a label used to be placed there. In the right corner, and going down the right side, is some dark discoloration--possibly from water damage. On the backside, there are more scratches and worn down corners. The same end of the wallet has the dark discoloration. There also is some white substance on this side.
When open, there are multiple sleeves and pockets. One side has a pocket with a flap that can be secured by a small piece of leather. This small piece is fragile and is almost torn off. There are two sleeves on this same side. There is a slight tear on the edge of these pockets. On the opposite side, there are four tiers of pockets. The fourth pocket is half the size of the other ones. There is a small tear near the opening of this one. The leather is also scratched and has more of that white substance.
Most likely was used to store pocket money and other forms of importance like identification. Donated by Constantine Bacil.
