A canvas wallet. It has a flap closure with a textile tie on the flap (machine-stitched) and another on the body of the wallet (hand-stitched, suggesting a repair or modification). Stitched to the back is a small cotton pouch (black stitching indicates it has been modified for the purpose), with a textile tape tie. There are also two canvas loops on the back of the wallet to enable it to be worn on a belt.
