this is an antique Moroccan, Thick Brown Leather, Water Seller's Bag with Flap.  Heavy stitching.    Metal (brass?) plate in the center surrounded by riveted coins.    
It is decorated with a variety of old European Coins.   Some coins I cannot identify the country of origin but I see coins from Spain; UK; Norway; Italy; Australia; France and one from US (1985).... ranging from the 1960's, 1970's, 1980's.   I saw one or two from  early 2000 and one from "Le Grande Casino de la Mamounia" (Marakesh).   Not sure when this was made ... some newer coins added later.
Moroccan water sellers would sell water to tourists and locals, dress in colorful clothing, and decorate their bags with the coins they collected.
please see photos.   Fabulous, rare, heavy item.
measures:
16" x 16" on the coin section.  
when opened, it is 31" long.     the leather strap is 2 5/8" thick.      
CONDITION: VG  some worn darkened leather; some soiled coins.    please see photos.
I will ship via the US Post Office and add tracking.    international has to be priority mail
Thank you.    Please see my other auctions for books, magazines and gifts..
