c. 1854 Antique Leather Money Wallet with American Eagle and Anchor Naval Motifs, Choice Very Fine.

An attractively embellished American wallet from the Pre Civil War period. Every face of the wallet including the outsides, the insides and even the flaps, were stamped with a large panel (2.5 x 6) containing two American Eagle and Navy Anchor designs, a central floral design, and a decorative border. A long strap wraps around the wallet one-and-a-half times to prevent pick-pocketers from opening the wallet and stealing the contents. The 1854 dating comes from an accompanying poem dated February 20, 1854, apparently in response to a wedding that took place two days earlier. Also, included are two old Indiana Broken Bank notes and a newsprint Bible riddle. Overall, in nice condition with some light molding scattered about with natural brown color.
