It is junk. I would not mount it for myself so I sure wouldn't mount it for a customer.
i wuld email bruce Rittel and ask him
Mold Rarely damages tanned leather. The expression is If leather molds, it still has plenty of use in it. If the cape was properly tanned. I would wash the hide with an anti fungal, and mount it. providing it is not slipping or anything. The mold will not hurt anything. Although I must say, It is odd for mold to grow in a freezer that is working.
