Repair a premature leather wear mark?

I need help trying to repair a spot on my leather that has a weird premature wear mark. I just received my new daily driver on saturday from my dad. The 2002 R/T has 30,000 miles, perfect condition...The leather is still in "new" shape....But theres this spot on the driver side seat that is showing lots of wear. My dad thinks its from his wallet or back of jeans when he would sit down? Can someone give me some options/suggestions?

Thanks

Yea, thats what gary680 was telling me. Im just wondering if black shoe polish would be too dark? Maybe dark gray shoe polish?

I have that same mark in the same spot, and my seats are in great condition too, with a little over 42k miles. I hit it with some leather wipes and seems to clean it up a bit.

Wow, that has got to be the best condition I've ever seen trep leather in. I would condition it really well and the dye sounds like a good idea too.

I have the same beginnings, in the same spot, but no where near as bad (257xxx kms).

It's probably more from getting in and out (ingress/egress issues as the auto trade calls it), as I sport my wallet in the other pocket.

Leatherequ is the best. Grey shoe polish might work if you wanna ghetto rig it....
