    Nice WE Scott seal Evening sporran with the "D" (diamond) pattern cantle for a dollar.

    I haven't looked closely, but the cantle might be the higher-level silver-plated type.

    If so, it will probably have "Made in Scotland" in tiny letters stamped on one side.

    That's funny but I understand. Sometimes you have to say that when referring to Oakland. My brother used to live right on the border with Piedmont and he just told people he lived in Piedmont - no explanation necessary and it avoided the "oh I'm sorry" looks. I'm in OC for the time being, looking after my dad who had a lengthy stay in the hospital back in Dec/Jan.

    Yes often I'll say "my nieces live in a part of Oakland that feels like you're in Berkeley" and everybody from the Bay Area knows exactly where it is.

    And yes, it's faster (and in a way more accurate) to just say they live in Berkeley.

    Beautiful older WE Scott brown day sporran with sealskin front here in the USA opening bid $49 no bids.

    Comes with very nice older civilian silver-plated Evening Dress waistbelt buckle. This is one of two patterns introduced along with the Montrose shell jacket around 1920.
