Smile Leather cover for the original Kindle (the old ugly asymmetrical one)

So, in a fit of nostalgia, I picked up a first generation Kindle, as it was the very first ereader I owned, and it's a design that's rather unique--and still pretty usable.



However, it didn't come with the stock cover that was originally supplied with the Kindle. I found one place online that sells the stock cover, but I figured I would check in here first and ask:

Is there anyone with leather covers (stock, Oberon, other manufacturers) that were designed for the Kindle 1, who would be willing to sell them?

I don't think I had ever seen a first generation Kindle. It's so Battlestar Galactica in white. I sadly have no covers for you, but I appreciate the picture.

It's definitely a weird little creature. Since they were originally selling for well over $300, Amazon could splurge on a lot of weird design elements that are now either (a) outdated, (b) hideous, or (c) too pricey to incorporate into a $100 e-reader.

If you'd like me to take some pictures of my K1, I'd be happy to.

I have an M-Edge Cover that I think I can find. I am keeping my stock cover so I have the entire original package.
