Souvenir Friday- Matterhorn Coin Purse

A companion piece to last Friday's souvenir is this coin purse in the shape of the iconic Matterhorn bobsled decal. Nicely done in tooled leather with bright gold and silver colors. This is a sample that was created in Germany in 1959 for possible sale by Disneyland. It is one of my favorite coin purses with a richness a camera just cannot do justice.

This is the kind of item that I wish they sold at the park today. I can't tell you how many times I've been to Disneyland and come home empty-handed because I can't find something that I want to buy.
