Stevie left this Wallet in his hotel in Yyteri , Pori, Finland. There was nothing valuable inside it, only some receipts and a membership card to the American Automobile Association Club (pictured above). Note that the name on that card is "A Lenny". The wallet was handed in to the local police station and after a certain time had elapsed, the police gave wallet to a local journalist. This journalist gave it to the owner as a present.
