Boom. Anyone want to challenge the current boss? $1950. people?
Thanks, and thanks for pointing this out. A very large fraction of the families coming through the Ronald McDonald Houses are there because of medical issues involving a newborn infant. In particular, many of the families are at the Ronald McDonald House because a baby was born prematurely. I think that any of us who are fathers (or mothers) can empathize with how difficult a time this would be for any family.
Unfortunately, this is not a request that I can fulfill, since I don't personally have access to the materials, and shell is in very high demand right now and hard to get a hold of. Viberg is not a belt maker, and I'm pretty sure that they would not release the shell needed to another maker.
I think that will will be as close a match as you would get, variations between dye lots and individula hides aside, since both companies use Horween leather. Apparently, the other shell cordovan colors are dyed by Rancourt itself, but the natural shell is straight from Horween.
$1950 and a few hours to go. Let's see if we can't get this to $2K. Anyone?
