VINTAGE ITALIAN LEATHER HAND MADE BOXES

Today it's old leather boxes.
My grandfather picked these up  on a trip to Italy back after WWII.
There is a third one also, but I don't know where I put it.
They show their age, but they're really cool, little hand made leather boxes with gold trim and design.
Great for putting cuff-links watches, and general small items in.
The big one is lined in a soft velvet and the little one is plain.
Only the little one is marked where it was made.
These little leather boxes are a cool item to have and since they're vintage, it makes what you put in them all the better.
If you find any of these, I'd suggest picking up one to hold something of sentimental value in...  It's Vintage Gear for Guys.

VINTAGE MONEY CLIP - TWO 1797 PORTUGAL COINS

Today it's an old money clip I have.
and by old I mean it's old and its old.... Try 1797...  Two Coins from Portugal.
It's simple, just two matching old coins with a spring.
It's a cool item that has a lot of history with it.  My grandfather use to carry this.
I'm not sure if he had it made or just bought it as is.  Are these coins worth anything on their own?
So there it is for today.  A simple 200 year old money clip....  It's Vintage Gear for Guys
