New ML Collectors,

An auctioneer on eBay is advertising some "genuine leather" ML's. 
Going beyond simple not-knowing (it's easy to think that early ML's 
were indeed leather), this person insists in the face of all evidence 
to the contrary that hirs are genuine leather-bound ML B-L pieces.

If they are leather, which they may be, they've been rebound. ML 
NEVER made a leather-covered book. It was a simulated leather called 
"croft leather".

So bid if you want; but know what you're bidding on.
