I was looking through some old photos and came up with pics of my case made in 1994. I had only planned on making one or two cases back in 1989 just for personal use but as luck would have it others also liked the cases and 5 years had passed before I actually made my personal case. The leather body is embossed ostrich and was picked up from a local flea market in Margate, Florida. The letters are 24k gold plated over silver. The case looks pretty much today like it did 15 years ago.
