This is fine leather coin purse made by Loewe, Spain. Coin purse is about 30
years old. It never been used. I will ship in new gift box as photographed.
It resembling the style and design as Louis Vuitton’s Taiga (green) coin purse,
Porte-monnie cuvette, change purse which is selling in USA at $700.00.
I found the reason why this coin purse almost identical to LV coin purse because

completely in1996 as paragraph listed separately. It is very interesting.
This coin purse is not available from Loewe any longer. Collector's item now.
