The seller has actually been very understanding and is offering a rebate on my next pair of Vass (which I suggested instead of a refund). 

He had, at least according to him, not noticed the hole. 

I was just curios to hear about similar experiences and maybe tips on how ensure that the life of the shoes are not effected.

This is the 'pearl' of a stingray skin. The contrasting color is not natural and is done with dye. If dyed all one color the raised dots nearer to the pearl tend to take less dye and thus tend to be a bit lighter. Somewhere along the way it became popular to extentuate this effect with the shape you see here. Personally I despise this effect. Though I very much like stingray (Shagreen).

Possible vtg EG for BB Loafers. Any idea what the stamped number markings indicate? Seller listed as 10D.

WOW! Those are amazing! Great find! From what I've read in other threads, the '100' is the size = 10.0 and '4' is the width (number system similar to that Tricker's uses). The '432' I am not sure of.

Thanks, that sounds pretty reasonable. Looking forward to trying them out, usually take a 10.5 but they are loafers so might work out.

4 is vintage D width 10 is size. These are pretty old as that system disappeared by latest in the 60s.

Always liked Ravello but would prefer it done with antique edge trim.
