Vernon Bill Fold - Burgundy Exterior / Tan Interior

149.00

Most of us never had a relationship with our great grandfather. We know of him through half-forgotten stories and scratchy old pictures. Great Grandpa Vernon was a corn farmer in Cedar Rapids, Nebraska and this old wallet is the closest connection we have to him. Upon his death in 1957 the wallet was given to his grandson and earlier this year, 57 years later, it was passed down again. The old wallet is fragile despite rarely being used post 1957 in fear it would be lost. After first marveling at its existence and being impressed that it survived as long as it did, we decided to make an updated version in honor of Vernon. The thin brown leather and black stitch of the original is recreated with  chromexcel leather and tan poly thread. The new wallet also contains an identification window and a stamped geometric pattern, both features inspired by the original. We have no doubt that this billfold will have the staying power to take on a life similar to that of Vernon's old wallet (pictured here with the new version).
