My Ordered Badge wallet arrived Yesterday evening and I am Saddened to report that the 'cutout is slightly smaller than my Badge and will need to be Trimmed to allow a Fit.
This could be either a change in tooling by the Badge maker or an undersized punch at the Wallet Maker.
I will be Carefully trimming the "Cutout" by hand until my Badge fits it properly.

For what it is worth:
The Label on the Wallet 'Baggie" says: Strong Leather Co. Badge Shape 967, Double ID Badge Wallet with credit card slots, ID's are back to back, Black Leather,  item No. 79500-967, Max. card size 3" x 3 1/2", fits the following badges: Blackington B2517P, Badge height 3", width 2.69", badge shape 967 and an outline drawing that looks like the outline for the badge shape I ordered, 'Smith and Wellan #262L'.

Vendor substitution or Error?Huh?
It does not matter as I can make it fit with some rework.

Best Regards,

It appears that the "967" badge and the "262L" badge share the Outline but there MAY be a slight difference in Manufacturer's Punches involved.  My "262L" badge is slightly Bigger,Top to Bottom, than the cutout in the wallet.  Side to Side it seems to match and the Top contour does Match the cutout very closely.
The Bottom contour is slightly different adn as such does not exactly match the Wallet cutout exactly.  The Space between the top two 'Star" tip balls and the Bottom two is also slightly longer in the Badge but would seem to go in if pushed.

Anyway, It is now with a Professional Leather Worker/Saddle Maker to be 'trimmed' to fit my Badge and he will also make a piece of leather to go in the "pocket" along with the badge to keep the Pin Back from wearing hole sin the outside of the wallet.

the same professional is going to make a simple Holster to fit my Ruger Long Barrel Single Eight so I will be 'Properly outfitted' eventually.

By the way.  this is the same person who restored a ~1906 Winchester "Leg of Mutton" take down rifle Scabbard for me tht I bought off Ebay.  He had to Hand Stitch EVERY joint an replace the Handle and one Strap.  Unfortunately it is not long enough for my Win. 1890 Rifles but it is long enough to take a Stevens Favorite in two parts.

I picked up the Badge wallet and Holster this Week.

The badge Wallet is now a Much Better fit to the S&W262L Badge and the  added Leather 'buffer' insert appears to be protecting  the Woven Polymer Material of the Back of the Wallet well. Now to Make up The Identification Card Insert and start wearing it.

The Holster Looks very good with My revolver in it.  Now I am waiting upon a Belt to put it on.

At Least the 'Heavy Campaign Rhetoric Coverage' is winding down again.

All slowly coming together.

Mustang Gregg,
The Badge Wallet I started with is  "STRONG Model 79500 Shape 967" ( Strong Leather Co., 39 Grove St., Glouchester, MA 01930 Tel.:(978)879-1050 Fax.:(978)281-6321 ) ordered from "COPS PLUS (.com)" on-line.

Cropped Close up of Badge in Wallet Modified cutout:


Photo from which the Cropped Close up was taken:


This Badge Wallet has a Leather Outer Face lined with 'Nylon Cloth" for a Bill Pocket. the ID flap is Two sided with clear plastic windows on both sides.   the opposite main side has four Pockets for 'Credit Card Size' items and also visible is a soft 'Swede' flap to protect the Badge finish.  It comes with an insert which takes the Pin back to hold the badge in place. I had my Leather Worker / Saddle maker make an addition ainser piec to prevent the Pin back cutting through The Pocket 'Nylon Cloth' back.
This is done in all over Black finish.  It came with a Small Sticker stating: "Made in India".

Overall, i am pleased with how the Wallet came out now tha tit is fitted for this badge.
Best Regards,
Chev. William
