The “Brauer” marking is the early style with “Y35” stamped above the marking – most likely a catalog number..  It is in excellent condition with all the original stitching intact, with no rips, tears or flaking to the leather.  Also, the leather is a supple dark saddle brown color and has not been oiled.
