Any oldtimers know who M.J.W. maybe or have been.  It had the solid glass eyes in it and the clay in the eye sockets are still soft, it never dried out after all these years.

I was only 6 years old when it was made, so it's a pretty cool piece of memorabilia to me.  

I want to thank Rhonda Luke in Fla. for sending it to me as a gift.

'75 that had to be pretty near the end of the paper form era. That was the year that I hung out the "shingle" and went to a full time business. I was using foam forms at that point. Also at that time, the Concave/Convex eyes were the "better" eyes on the market AND had been for a few years. There's a taxidermist locally that was STILL USING those eyes about 6-7 years ago.  He must have bought out the last of the supply available! LOL
