I found this at a Estate sale ready to be thrown out, The lining and pockets had been totally ripped apart , as was other articals in the pile. I found the family was looking for something and just tore things up trying to find it. I rescued this beautiful fur and did not know if it could be restored or not. We do not have a furier nearby so I took it to a tailor and believe it or not, it is totally restored, all hand stitched, will last forever. Before taking to the tailor I was scanning over the damage and deep in one of the pockets at the bottom where it had be ripped open was 4 numbers written small in ball point pen. I think that is what they were searching for, perhaps ATM #, Combination #, Lockbox # etc. Due to the place I found the number I don’t think no one else would have found it. It is still visible, even after the repairs but the pocket has to be turned inside out.
