Matching coin purse is suspended from the frame by two 3/4” wide fabric straps and the coin purse is marked in gold lettering “ JR Made in USA.” Excellent unused condition. inside and out. Measures 8 x 4 x 6 1/2” .

This item was part of the archives of the Bag Lady Emporium, originally in operation from 1996 through 2022 (Inventory ID A00328). It sold for $50.00 in 2011.
