Unfortunately, the alligator purse was not the kind of accessory you’d want to show off; in fact, it was quite hideous. Complete with head, tail and legs, the skin of a single baby alligator had been stitched into its back and cover. This was definitely a novelty item, not a fashion accessory.
Meanwhile, after locating a stamp stating that the purse was genuine alligator skin and made in Cuba, Bobby checked it for further clues. There was nothing to suggest that it contained anything of interest, however, much less something of value. Instead, Bobby found his real prize hidden in the hole.
