The vet's son has more items which he is selling to me.

He told me that his son (the vet's Grandson) got most of the high end items.

There are still some gems left.

I will be picking up another helmet and some knick knacks on Friday and I will post them.

I actually think the helmet that I am buying Friday is the one shown in the window.

There seems to be a lot of blood in the liner.

Very nice items and a great bit of history. I'd like to hope it was poor storage.

There was a store in Waverly NY with a similar type display. Was this store anywhere near there?
