    Default This One Goes to the Top Shelf...

    Starting a new thread on this one. Best friend said it was at an auction. He neglected to tell me it was the auction of his grandmother's estate! Unfortunately, the helmet was already advertised on the auction company's site, so I had to bid on it for any chance to get it. His mother told me that had they not already advertised it, she would have just GIVEN it to me. Bummer. Well, it took me some cash but I had to have it. The condition is great and I don't have one of these in my collection. Hope you love her as much as I do. I am especially fond of the texture. The overall look is easy on the eyes. I believe this one belongs on the top shelf

    Nice lid. It has almost all of it's original texturing.

    Is there dust inside and on on the liner ? It could be removed
    with a slightly damp cloth.........

    Yes, it's dust. I might try to clean it up some but undecided. There is something written on one of the fingers but can't make it out.
