Vintage LV wallet. Good fake or authentic?

I have a vintage wallet that may or may not be authentic LV. I know nothing about authenticating, so I'll put pics on here and see what more knowledgeable people think. I'm leaning towards a fairly good-quality fake, myself, but as I paid $5 for it I wouldn't be too put-out either way. It's definitely leather, and I think older, maybe 70's/80's? The stitching, including inside, and zip seem good quality. It's clearly had use, and shows some wear along the edges as shown, but I'm not sure of age.

Thank you all in advance.

This wallet is fake. I think it's a modern fake probably made within the last few years. Good thing you did not pay too much for it.

That's what I thought -the placement of the 'louis vuitton' in the squares don't look like they are in the same place as in the genuine, but on the other hand, it clearly wasn't a 'dollar store' fake because it is real leather, and the stitching is too good quality for the lower-quality fakes I see in every dollar store type place(a common chain here is called coin save). so I wasn't entirely sure. I picked it up at a street market selling all sorts of 2nd hand/'vintage' stuff, I was mainly interested in the strong metal zip...I'm really hard on zips and always break them, the zip on this looks practically indestructible.
