Membership and insurance sales grew rapidly. Mirror silvering has two brown edge marks but over 90% intact. Collet has oxidation with some small degree of pitting but only a few tiny stain dots on underside narrow celluloid edge and no stain at all on the front. Curl names maker Whitehead & Head and this is among their very best full color mirrors. Our first in years. VF but displays essentially Mint.
