I first ordered the antique brown, but returned it, it wasn't the rustic finish in the pictures, but rather a hideous mottled coloring and a fake plastic like feel rather than leather. I wanted to give Crimson truth a second opportunity, being that they're a Christian company and made in the USA. I then tried the black, it had a solid coloring which seemed to be an improvement, however, I was let down again. It too had a fake plastic look/sheen and plastic touch rather than leather characteristics. It seems somewhat durable, but the quality of leather is poor. I did a youtube video of it, search mjohn11 Leather bible cover review. I got the Bob Siemon cover instead, it was a better cover for only a few dollars more!
