ageing

The Winchester 4CCF does develop a patina with time. Below on the left a worn example and on the right a very worn one.

experience

I am a bit biased with this binder as I do love my dark green one. In the end it is a very good looking relic of the vintage era of Filofax binders having very nice features and quality leather but it is hard to find 4CCF Winchesters being in very good shape. Most have a quite worn croc print, seldom used ones do tend to be neglected which does show in the leather being very dry and maybe even cracking. If you find a very well-cared for, seldom used 4CCF you might have to pay pretty big money for it, there have been auctions going as high as 200 GBP.
