Title Leather Drawstring Coin Purse

Description A small leather coin purse (5.5 in.) with drawstring and leather closure straps and snap button. Leather has design printed into leather and is worn at the folds. The drawstring is made out of a thick off-white cotton string, on the end of each draw string is a sivler metal ball which is slightly oxidized. There are two drawstrings on two sides of the bag; the two strings on each side are attached by the metal ball. The bag also has a smooth leather strap that reaches over the top of the bag with a snap button at the end. On one side the strap is torn away where the button would have been.
