    Stunning alligator wallet, which I'm told is French, and made in the 1920s. It has superb skins inside and out. Even the billfold is lined with alligator! It shows some minimal wear, but is in remarkable condition for its age. Very slim, rare and elegant. 6.5" x 4.5". $425 -- $410 --> $395 --> $375 --> $360 --> $350 --> $335.

    ITEMS BELOW ARE SOLD

    1) First a pair of unworn, dark brown crocodile suspenders, made in France. Just beautiful. $125 --> $115 --> $110. SOLD

    2) Next, a vintage black alligator belt, in very good shape. Marked a size 34, but at 37.25", perhaps closer to a size 32. 1" wide. $50 --$45 --$42. SOLD

    3) Next is a truly beautiful one-piece alligator belt in a mid-brown (peanut?). One-piece belts are rare, and are typically priced about $100 more than regular alligator belts (if you can find them). This one is used, but in terrific shape. It's a size 34, and it 38.75" long. $115 --> $110 --> $105. SOLD

    4) Next are two "project" belts. The first is another one-piece belt, with a great deep brown color and a beautiful pattern, but the scales are lifting in the 7" stretch where the holes are. I've tried to glue them down, but done a lousy job. Maybe you can do better, or maybe you can cut down the belt (if you have a small waist or have a SO who can use it.) It's a size 34, and is 40". $35 --> 32 --> $30. SOLD

    5) The second project belt is a Coach alligator belt size 36 (43") long, made when Coach products were first class. It's about 1.25" wide. One of the scales has lifted, and again, I've done a lousy job of glueing it. You should be able to do this better, or have a professionaly clean it up and re-glue it. $45 --$42. SOLD

    6) Now, two wallets. One, mundane; the other sublime. The mundane one is a credit card case made by Flemings of Buckhead. It is well used, and no longer has the sheen on it, but it's otherwise in great shape, with years of use left. 2.75" x 3 3/4". $35 --$32 --> $30. SOLD
